Deryll,Kirsten and Liz.

Deryll and Kirsten having a moment about the "shrinking"properties of felt....
"That"piece of felt began life the same size as the paper below before being put into a 60 degree wash! It had a lovely texture but that wasn't what was expected.

Deryll had sketched out a rough idea of something to do with seashore.The paper with holes was a watercolour by her husband,hopefully discarded.She had used the punched paper with the Flower Stitcher foot to create the"beads" you see below.

This shows the editioning of possible fabrics along with buttonhole rings made by Deryll with a couronne  stick.A piece to look out for methinks.

Kirsten is The felt expert  of the group.She will be teaching at Nature In Art in the New Year.She brought along these wonderful little chaps.Sally was in raptures as she loves penguins....We suggested they might collaborate on a piece "au Anthony Gormley"

Following on from her success at the Guild she has repackaged the brooches,don't they look fine?
The Guild are now stocking these so pop in for a last 
 minute gift.

Here are Liz's creative contributions,Lino printed cloths and some rust dyed and stitched.

She has a box of treasures picked up while beach combing in and around St Ives.Are they too precious to part with and use in this piece?

The lino blocks with their accompanying fabric print.the leaf is maple........honest!
