Don't scroll past

Remember these from my last post

I also had some ice-dyed silk noil that I could use as  the cover.

However I decided not to make a conventional book but to make a scroll book.  I tore up all of the above pieces into smaller strips.  I took a piece of dyed cotton that I was never going to use for the backing.  I forgot to take a photo so this was taken after I had started stitching.

I put Bondaweb on the backing fabric, laid the strips of silk noil on top and ironed them to bond them all together.

I have started randomly stitching on this piece, particularly where the bonding didn't work too well.

 Here's a close up of the extended fly stitch.  There's also running stitch.  I'm using variegated thread from Paintbox Threads.

Thanks for stopping by
