Above is the piece of work I completed at the workshop.
Since I came home and also since the problems have sorted themselves, I have been doing a lot of free machine practice and free machine doodling.
These are two of my current practice pieces. One is just a grid of squares but the other is in a double wedding ring type layout.
As I said, I am also doing a lot of doodling.
These are two panels that will be part of a new sewing machine travelling case for my new Bernina, since one of my machines was damaged badly on a plane trip early this year! I am in love with this multicolour wonderfil thread!
This one, finished now, was a mandala I doodle stitched then coloured with fabric markers. I also have one other doodle panel on the go, but haven't photographed it yet.
So what else?
Above left is a needlefelted panel I whipped up one day (lol), which is waiting for some stitching, and the other is a very large crochet blanket I have been working on called sophie's universe. I am only half way, perhaps I'll finish by next summer?
Of course if you know me, you know that textiles are only half my crafty self. I will post soon with some of my art, journaling and mixed media play.
