Threadwork: silks, stitches, beads and cords Effie Mitrofanis

 I realised as I was sewing one of the final textile works for Assignment two, that I was being inspired by Effie Mitrofanis book Threadwork: silks, stitches, beads and cords. I have this book at home but unfortunately not with me here in the outback. The book is written in the context of embroidery but it highlights lush colour and texture with the use of stitch and inclusions. 

I know it was in the back of my mind as I couched nylon ribbon on to my work.
