This is where it all started for me but times change and now all of my blogging takes place over at my
Quilt Routes blog and I hope you will join me over there.

I think...

...I might have overplayed the significance of this piece shown in my last post.
It is no more than an exploration of texture. From a design point of view it would need more work.
Thanks for the nice comments though. They are always appreciated.

Bits of silk embellished onto acrylic felt.

Partly layered with voile.

stitching sunday

I am still plugging away at this, but needed a bit of a change.
Last Saturday I was "on the bill", so to speak, with Angie Hughes, at a Quilt Guild Regional Day
I have always loved her work and it was a treat to see the things she is working on now. 
I have done two workshops with Angie in the past, and they rate among the best I have ever taken.

Angie is a machine embroiderer who has done a lot of work on velvet.
Channeling my inner Angie, I am working on black felt, just for fun and thoroughly enjoying myself.

Moving on.

There has been a lot to do lately but I am now finding some time to work on these, started a couple of weeks ago.
The fabric has been painted...

...and layers of texture added...

Later today I am hoping to beginning the stitching.
I hope you have a creative weekend.
Linking up with Off the Wall Friday.
