A personal project
Awhile ago, I started a personal thread-painting project to decorate our house. I shared it on my personal Facebook page, to show people what I was up to, and people liked it a lot, so I thought, ok, I will show my Copper Catkin audience, too.
An unexpected reaction
I thought people would say something nice, as people often do, and then get on with their day - but people started approaching me and saying that they wanted to make their own, so I thought, ok, why not?
A new range of designs
My personal thread-painting project was originally only going to be a simple kereru design, with the name of the house (Te Rerenga Manu) stitched around it - but of course, I decided to make it more complicated, and add a wreath.
Now, I have realised that I want a partner piece to go with it - so I have designed it in advance, and I will be the first tester of this second design. I am going to print them on black backgrounds for me, but I know a lot of people prefer them on a white background, so I will offer that option, too.
I have also designed a few smaller pieces, for different levels of complexity (and different sizes).
Keep an eye out for these, and maybe a few more, once they have gone through testing.
