Of course we have been doing other things too!

Helen was doing some handwork on canvas. Isn't it pretty?
She says it may be a postcard one day.

Cindy brought along some very interesting show and tell this time. First, she brought a beautiful piece of Jane Bodnaruk's eco-dyed wool felt. Cindy added embroidery and applique to create this gorgeous work!

She also saw a silk scarf she liked, so she bought some silk laps to create a similar one. She laid the laps between two layers of a dissolvable stabiliser and stitched by machine. Then she cut some holes and added adhesive dissolvable stabiliser. She stitched around the holes she'd made and washed out the stabiliser.
Isn't it gorgeous?

This piece is inspired by the Aurora Borealis and is for the extraTexture exhibition, Flight, to be held at the Balmain Watch House in August. It's made from painted fusible web on cotton, with tulle and organza. It will be framed for display. You can follow the exploits of the extraTexture girls on their blog.

Her last work was an experimental art quilt made from an online website, using machine stitching and watercolour pencils.

She's so clever , isn't she?

Nola finished her book page that she was working on back here for the book round robin.
It will be interesting to see this book finished, won't it? You can see where she's going with this on her blog.

See you after our next meeting!
