Chapter 5 Drawn Thread Work

The following are photos of samples for this chapter. The dyeing process didn't really work as I made the dyes too weak and tried to use walnut dye crystals. I had thought that bright Procion dyes would look awful on the natural linen scrim. Also the scrim is really stiff so I wonder whether it has a finish on it which impeded the dyeing process. Wherever possible I have matched samples to lettering shapes.
