slow cloth and practical pottery #5

Here is a little more of my slow cloth project, I wasn't sure enough of my drawing skills to work directly onto the fabric, so made a couple of attempts on paper first, then pinned the tracing paper to the fabric and stitched through it onto the fabric.

I really like the shadows and lines that the stitching creates in the fabric, a bit like digging furrows in a field.
