ECO PRINTED VEST TOP

The botanical printed vest is now finished and the silk noil fabric has a lovely soft drapy feel to it. This is the first time I have eco printed with this fabric and shall definitely be using it again. It doesn't have the same sheen as finished silks, but is still rather nice.

WORKSHOP WITH JACKIE CARDY

As you may have noticed on the Workshop page, I organise occasional workshops at The Minerva Centre in Llanidloes. In July Jackie Cardy gave a 2 day workshop making felt pictures, there were 11 of us on the course and some lovely pieces were produced all to be worked on at home afterwards adding stitch, hand and machine, to the pieces. Here is my finished picture which I have mounted onto artists' canvas backed with black felt. Inspiration came from the Botanica book in the Kew Museum range, a really fabulous book with amazing illustrations.
