Many ideas got bandied around in my sketch book until I arrived at the ‘Forest’ idea.
I still like some of these ideas here so may do another couching sample down the track one day.
It was enjoyable to do but the forest became a bit tedious stopping and starting with different length yarns etc.
I scrounged the white dupioni silk from Shirley and used pieces of organza to build up the background.
Yarns used were all different types and I used a hairy golden brown one for the forest floor.
The border was a rayon type of braid which was a bit hard to handle but I just carefully couched it on best I could.
Take a Stitch Tuesday is weekly challenge put out by Sharon Boggon of www.pintangle.com and you can see lots of other examples of couching HERE.
