Show and tell

We had an interesting mix of show and tell this time.

Helen brought along her Houses round robin from the Mt Colah Embroiderers. She made this block of flats at the start of the year,
and it's been passed around the group, with each person adding a house. Here's how it looks now:



Cindy, our new member, brought along a work she'd made as the result of an online course with lacemaker Karen Ruane a while back. During the course, she built up a journal full of different techniques and ideas, which will be a brilliant resource in the future. 






 
And here's the final work. It's inspired by tiles in the Avignon Papal Palace and involves transfer dyes and transfer inks on felt, cut with the soldering iron and heat distressed.
 


Just gorgeous!
 
Maz brought along some little books she'd made for her sister and her sister's friend to use as travel diaries on their upcoming trip.
 

Just perfect for recording those special moments.
