Julia Caprara’s Buttonhole Textile

I found some more images of the work I posted yesterday. This close up shows the work with the 3rd layer – the buttonhole stitch starting to be built up.

The buttonhole stitch works to blend and highlight specific areas of the textile.

This is another work using Julia’s technique. It is a Rockies scene where fireweed is colonising an alluvial deposit. I still need to work in more of the buttonhole stitched flowers before it is finished.

    Lesley, these pieces of yours are gorgeous. They do seem to capture the rugged beauty of Canada. Thanks for posting them. I can see why you feel so indebted to Julia Caprara.

    Thank you for all of these retrospective/introspective posts about Julia.
    I shall have to add this to the arsenal as i’ve been doing a lot of hand stitching lately.
