The end of the Cornwall Creative Fortnight....

18th March 2018

Arrived back in Richmond on Friday. chilled on Saturday with embroidery and catching up on I-player programmes......

....the last day was spent making notes and samples for my sketchbook....

....cut out these shapes from Funky Foam....


....printed on tea dyed Abaca, but think the foam is too flimsy so will have another go with eraser/lino as I love the simple shapes....


....cut out shapes in organza, two layers....


....stitched on the machine but forgot to take a photo.....


....a friend let me use her silk dyes and had a play making backgrounds for stitching on silk...



.....also machine stitched on my printed samples from earlier in the week...

....think these prints might look good on a thicker fabric maybe for a cushion, mug mats,table mats...


....card topper...


....layering a variety of rectangular fabric scraps, need to machine down as I go along, WIP....


....made this very simple embroidery on a linen scrim but really need a finer weave fabric.


OOPS, I forgot to take photos of the work this last week except for Claire's amazing wall hanging, nearly completed, all stitch and cut out work. This photo does not do it justice as the colours are so much more vibrant.


Just had a day with Alba who can't quite say grandma, so calls me baba!!!

Enjoy your week....
