Here are some owl canvas embroideries that Helen has been working on at our meetings.
Yes, well spotted, the second one did become a postcard!
Nola was braiding multiple strands of embroidery threads to create a watchband. It's quite fiddly because, even braiding many strands, the braid is quite fine.
Yvonne is working on her favourite activity, tapestry weaving. She has no special plan for these little pieces - they will find their way into something one day.
Helen had a challenge from another group, Lateral Stitchers, which she brought along to show us. She had to make a book wrap and a matching postcard in response to one of those paint sample cards you get at the hardware store. Her paint card was turquoise.
The gorgeous blue netting is from a bag they sell fruit in, at her local greengrocer!
Here's the matching postcard:
Carol has been bringing this scarf along to Fibrecircle for a while. Not surprising, as it's going to be a real Doctor Who scarf, metres and metres long.
Here's some embroidery - can you guess whose it is? Yes, it's Helen's. She does such beautiful handwork.
She made this beautiful sea scene as well
Jan was working on this piece of cloth - it will be a postcard sometime soon.
And last meeting, Nola was working on her rigid heddle loom, creating a sample piece for warp and weft floats.
You'll see a photo of this when it comes off the loom.
