To Dye or Plaster

I have been stitching a couple of samples on and off for the past few days and aim to either dye them or cover them with a mixture of plaster, emulsion paint and PVA before painting them. Not sure whether I have finished stitching them as I feel they need some more texture on the fabric strips.

Before I do the colouring I think I will need to stretch the pieces out or the stitching will remain scrunched up which is not what I want.  I have been working from a photograph of some weather worn stonework which  I cannot for the life of me remember when I took it or where it was.
