I have been absent and for that I apologise.  I am totally consumed by my Land of Dreaming project and reacquainting myself with the mythologies and Goddesses of my homeland – I am engrossed and loving it .

Enjoy 🙂

This month’s theme was Autumn or Halloween – I went with Autumn:

The background fabric is heavily machined calico in various reds, onto which I stitched into place a square of woven fabrics, the colours of which I felt are autumnal – I then hand stitched over this square.  I wove a variegated dyed wool around the edge of the square and finished it off by couching the leaf shape in a thin velveteen ribbon.  I am happy with the result, hope the recipient is :).

This month’s theme was no theme so I decided to do another stitched doodle.  I am beginning to get my head around the concept of these and that traditional quilting per se is not necessary.  I am pleased with the result and  hope the recipient likes it.    I do seem to have a lot of recurring shapes and symbols in my work!

A friend of mine is not so well at the moment.  She loves colour, it makes her happy, so I decided to make a small book into which I will set the following ATCs.  I hope it brings her some cheer.

It was fun to play this way, experimenting on a small scale.
