Debby brought along some of her designs she had had printed through Spoonflower.
You can upload designs and play around with them ,these come from her appliqué pictures.She has mirrored the bottom right sample .All have been embellished with machine stitch in Debby's quirky and original style.
The top left design came from Fingerprint,the company run by Laura Kemshall. Debby has added her own 'stamp' on the fabric by stitching the bird.

Finally finished quilting this piece, called Willow, for our Nature in Art exhibition, and uses fabrics that I have Eco Dyed using leaves collected on my walks, and naturally dyed fabrics bought from Deryll.
I've also been busy stitching panels of Eco dyed silk noil together as a record of a walk through Nature in Art's garden using leaves I collected as I walked, plus little books of Eco dyed papers.

Viv has taken her sea pieces to be framed ready for Nature In Art.She had fabrics left over so has decided to work another piece.
This is it in its raw' state,it will be completely unrecognizable when next you see it.
Patricia meanwhile has been industrious and finished several pieces .
The colours and textures have to be seen 'in the Flesh' to be appreciated.Such a lot of detail that cannot be picked up in photos taken ad hoc on a drear day.
