Softening Edges

The fog was thick when I woke this morning, so I went straight to the beach with my camera. Here is some tea dyeing I did yesterday, softening the fabric's former white colour:
And this is my first hand pieced block. I prefer the softer, looser feel of the seams to tightly bound machine stitching.

And here is my Spirit Bear - who first appeared in an earlier fabric story, along with the white rabbit, last month. She has not eaten the bunny, but is keeping her safe in her belly. I like intermingling piecing, weaving and collage in one cloth.. There is a week left in the Patchwork Beasts online class and I have many pieces waiting for stitch and embellishment - layers waiting to merge into one.
