Loads of Landscapes.

 

It’s less than 2 weeks since I last posted my blog, but I seem to have lots to show you !

Firstly a catch up – Beckie has been making some beautiful Crazy Patchwork cushions ….

…these are a present for someone but I’m a bit tempted to keep them myself !

Two people who came to the Zendoodlestitch course sent me the photo’s of their completed pieces – they had both got hooked on the unstructured style of working and didn’t want to stop ! Here’s Rona’s work …

I had a lovely day with Diana, Jill and Tina last week, they were creating some Hooked and Prodded Landscapes. The following are all in the early stages of working …

Tina was using a picture of a rug by Louisa Creed as her inspiration.

There were more landscapes when I ran a session on Applique Pictures at The Fabbadashery last weekend. Again, these are works in progress – once the fabric applique has been completed the embroidery and embellishment adds the detail to the pictures.

… they were both new to rag rugging but made a good start on their projects.

This weekend we had another day course on Applique Pictures with 4 self-confessed ‘giddy girls’ !! In between the giddiness they did get some lovely work done though !

– I think they were trying to behave for the camera !

They did some great pictures though including some cup-cakes which are just waiting for some embroidery and some beading sprinkles ! ….
