This is the packet of dusters I bought for 99p(about $2 I think),see bird below. These are some dyed pieces using silk dyes.
and this is a cover for my notebook, (Yes, I now have a notebook, more of a scribble book really but it's a start) I can take no credit of the lovely shading on these, that came from a piece of rainbow dyed sheer fabric I have been hoarding.
It was really an excercise for me to practice "vermicelli" stitch on the machine. It is getting better but there are still a lot of those nasty little pointy bits.
