Above are our works that we began creating on the day.
There may have only been four of us on the day, but show and tell as always is worth a look see.
Sheila had made this book cover using last moth's activity presented by Wendy. The final stitched piece was inserted into another piece of fabric, which was then turned into the book cover.
The Embroiderer's Guild is displaying poppies for the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. The display will be in the Gallery window in November. Sheila made one sheer fabric poppy using a stencil cutter to create the petals and beaded the center. The brighter red poppy was created using four Suffolk puffs, felt and french knots.
On an impulse buy, Jenny succumbed to purchasing three yarn cakes from Lincraft while they were on sale. The crocheted squares above are from the Shepherd Baby Shawl Collection 1 book, and are being sewn together to form either a knee rug or baby blanket.
Quilt NSW is collaborating with Arterie Lifehouse to create a patchwork wall hanging for the State of the art building. Sheila has completed blocks from kits that were distributed by Quilt NSW.
Sheila's daily practice for August was to create a fun foam stamp every day. This flower shape was created with a single stamp printed multiple times.
Our little group had another fun day, with a creative exercise, some oohing and arhing over pieces in the collection room, to stitching an chatting to visitors in the the Gallery. I wonder what we will get up to next month?
