Some years ago Anneli sent me the most gorgeous woollen thread which she had spun. I was over the moon with these gift but I never used, it was simply too beautiful to waste. Fortunately this week I finally found a way to honour this lovely thread.
This week I have been experimenting with embroidery on paper.
In the picture you can see the divers texture and embellishments of the woollen thread. With my snoregaffel I made the little bumpers. The beads were an obstacle while making the bumpers but with some patience they turned out perfect.
In the picture above you can see a part of the Ægishjálmr, the nordic sign of protection. I tried to mimick the texture and colours of the bumpers by combining one thread of Gütenmann, one thread of DMC and one thread of Blomstergarn. Embroidery on paper is a bit of a hassle, still I'm pleased with this journey so far.
