Firstly I must say thank you to Jackie who very kindly gave me an award which I need to pass on to seven others.
Watch this space, I will have ago this week.
As I am fairly new in blog land it's nice to think may be a few people find your blog worth a look.
I had my ticket come through for the Knitting and Stitching show at the NEC this week.
I find it so inspiring I can't wait!
Last year I was in awe of the work of Helene Soubeyran who made segments of petrified textiles, fabric folded and pleated and preserved in resin.
Tilleke Schwarz had 25 years of work on display.
All her incredibly detailed samplers, just breath taking seeing them all together.
So here is what I have been working on and will be tonight with some hand stitching.
As you can see I have been drawing on to the felt with my sewing machine free motion foot.
I try and use my machine in the same way as I draw or paint.I then have to use hand stitching, I love the rhythm of stitching by hand.
My life drawing class starts again this week so I may have some drawings to share with you...
only if they work out ok of course, I don't want to shock anyone!
Bye for now.
