ATC Swap

Claudia and I have regular ATC swaps with Anne from France who stitches the most exquisitely fine cross stitch embroideries- she must have much better eyes than me! Below are the two beautiful embroideries we received from Anne today. Ours will be in the mail today Anne. Thankyou for swapping with us.

I will post ours when I know Anne has received them.

2011 Scarf Festival

Just had to post about Claudia who decided to design and make a scarf for entry into the Scarf Festival currently held annually at the National Wool Museum in Geelong. It was so nice to see her excitement at receiving a Highly Commended award at the Opening Night Ceremony. Great job Claudi!!

I have been quietly beavering away at some stumpwork embroidery. I am hoping to post some finished pieces next week, now I am on school holidays. The long term aim is to make a casket but for now I will do some small pieces for the Intermediate certificate I am doing with Alison Cole through the Embroiderer’s Guild. I couldn’t resist Alison’s latest beautiful book full of her gorgeous embroidery.

Our Creative textiles group (now renamed Gee TAG-for Geelong Textile Arts Group) has been working on linocutting and printing. This is a print of the two linocuts I made during our meeting:

and then Pauline’s which has been printed out for everyone in our group as a challlenge. It will be interesting to see how differently they all turn out.
