Surface Weaving

Jude is working on a nine patch piece as a giveaway in the cloth to cloth class. She is posting her progress and I decided to take advantage of this process. I have been working along with her to get a feel of how she progresses through a piece. My version is quite different than hers, of course, but the process is the same. I did some surface weaving on 2 of the patches and I loved that technique. I got that idea from a post that Grace did on her blog.  Click on the photos for a closer look.

I'm also working on some Teneriffe and Nanduti lace weavings. Hope to post those soon.

your surface weaving looks similar to what i know as needle weaving. It's very addictive, be careful!!
