Short break in Florida

My husband Ian surprised me with a vacation last week in Naples Florida, so good to see and feel the sun, so I haven’t done anymore work on Dale’s piece. Will get on to it this week, posting a book I made a few weeks ago, pages are machine needle felting with various embellishing techniques machine and hand stitching etc.

New work

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

Dale Rollerson the owner of The Thread Studio in Australia has asked me to provide a piece of work for her stand at the WA Craft Show in Perth in August. I’ve decided to do something new and as I know Dale loves mixed media I’ve been playing with Tyvek. I decided to machine stitch a design on the Tyvek with a backing of felt, painted it with diluted acrylic paint, when dry zapped it (carefully) with a heat gun.
