More Ruby and other works

Carol and Yvonne were both working on their Ruby challenge works in August.

Yvonne was making some of her signature tapestry weaving.
Can't wait to see where she goes with this!
Carol decided to make a ruby slipper, fit for Cinderella to wear. Here's what she did so far...
Amazing! You should see more of this later too.

Maz was working on some knitting. She finished the jacket she was making with the Noro yarn...
... and had cast on again with more of the same yarn.
Isn't it pretty?

Cindy has been hard at work too. This piece was made as a gelliplate print and then stitched.
Beautiful!

Her second work is made from woven strips of prefelt, hand stitched.

She used scraps of the same woven prefelt, machine couched and backed, to make some additional elements, which haven't been stitched on yet. I'm sure you'll see it when it's all done!

August postcards

Only a few of us were around to swap postcards in August - it's travelling time!

For her postcard, Maz layered hand dyed and commercial fabrics, muslin and lace, left over from her work in the recent Future...past exhibition at the Palm House, Sydney Botanic Gardens. She added seed and straight stitches.

 
Yvonne's postcard, Moon, was inspired by the recent super moon. The background is painted fusible web on calico, with couching and laced running stitch.
Nola's postcard, Ghost Gum, #6 in her Forest series, began as a scrap of fabric from the top of her Forest challenge bag back here in 2011. It was quilters' muslin with paint and drawn lines, to which she added more paint and pencil colour. It has a running stitch edge. 

 We won't be swapping postcards in September - stay tuned for more postcards in October.
