A Good Weekend....

13th March 2017

Saturday was a lovely warm day here in Richmond, went for my favourite walk and admired the beauty of nature in the park.....



















.....the river walk was so busy, everybody enjoying the good weather...


....Sunday it rained so did some stitching..


....took a while but am pleased with the result. I found this silk thread in my box and the colours are perfect!


Off to spend the day with my gorgeous granddaughter......

Back in Richmond after a wonderful week of creativity. On Thursday afternoon we displayed work on our tables and I was amazed by the quantity and quality, so many very talented ladies......

...just LOVE these quirky bird fabric sculptures...































....fabric stitched in a variety of ways on wool then washed in the machine, indigo dyed, fabulous texture....

































....I managed one last walk on the last day before it began to rain....





...wild primroses on the bank...


....this is Gerri with her amazing creation, so many hours of stitching, the circles are made using chick peas....
