Little fabric books are a great way to explore ideas and let yourself free in whatever takes your fancy. 6x6 inches of handwoven cotton are used here with the Studio's hand dyed threads. 3x3 inch squares below are a great way to layer or try out ideas. 
Using linen as the base cloth here and simple running/satin stitches with 2 strands of Amaranthine's hand dyed threads you can create a pletora of patterns with a very simple stitch. Using a very neutral color scheme here will make your project look and feel elegant and sophisticated.
