A patch of blue sky

I dusted off my sewing machine (and I mean dusted!) for the first time in a very long time today, to patch and piece together the beginnings of a corner of blue sky.

I dyed the fabric in my usual haphazard 'chuck it in and see what happens' way at the beginning of the week and it just so happened that the resulting colour of the fabric perfectly matched this morning's sky.

Now, shall I add clouds, or shall I not?


  1. I'm tempted to say, given your location, clouds are a necessity, but actually, I think the lighter bits give the impression of high, thin clouding very well, without any additions.

    1. I quite like the squareness of the patches at the moment without adding softer cloudy bits... maybe I'll add some water and decide whether it looks like it's a sunny day or not.
