For the Love of Stitching Sampler band 549

This area is part of section 38 on the For Love of Stitching band sampler. As I explained when I introduced this section I created the sampler after the Victorian fires.  After an Australian bushfire the landscape is all ash and back trees. I decided to try and record this on my sampler using highly textured stitches.

The For Love of Stitching Band Sampler is 15 cm (6 inches) wide. It consists of different strips of fabric which are are stitched together to form one long strip. It currently measures 24.8 yards or 22.75 metres long and I have more bands to add.

  1. Sharon, you’ve captured that beautifully (if one can say ‘beautiful’ of a wildfire . . .I suppose there’s an eerie beauty to the aftermath if you’re not terrified). There was a fire down the road from us last summer – mostly scrub-cedar, around here, which is a wet wood so the trees and ground stayed more brown – but the overall effect is JUST like what I can see when I drive to town.
    (It happened over July 4th weekend, and we have lots of idiots who think firecrackers and beer combine well, so the Fire Dept is pretty sure how it started . . . but they’ll never pin it on anybody.)

  2. Sharon, I cannot begin to tell you how much pleasure I am getting every day when your email arrives! I wish I had signed up for something like this ages ago. I haunt the email until it comes. It’s a special moment of pleasure each day. Thanks & hugs, Barb
