We've just gone straight into summer in South Africa and the studio has started heating up... in more ways than one!
The Kuna, from the San Blas Islands, create a reverse applique panel which they then stitch into and wear traditionally as shirts, but along with nose rings, blue sarongs and great flair.
I've been so inspired by their art that I've tried to use it somehow in machine embroidery.
So far, I'm happy!
Sew, here I go, back to my cave, with another design running around in my head. I'll post more again soon.
