I thought for ages and searched the internet for something witty or apt to put on my fortune but everything either seemed trite or like I was trying too hard.
So I settled for simplicity.
The stitches are about 1mm long each in order to get the curves on the letters and stitched in hand dyed silk thread on a crisp, paper-like sample of silk fabric.
The silk was folded over and bondawebbed together to stop it fraying and look more like a piece of paper.
I’m so pleased with the way this is going.
Now all three elements need stitching onto the red background.
