A trip and some texture.

Sally had been away with a friend since last meeting .She had made a book as a record as usual but told us about their visit to the Meissen factory.

This is a picture from the book she bought showing the Monkey figures which sell for fantastic sums of money.Her base was in Dresden ,which was subjected to large scale bombing during World War 11.They had also visited Berlin and ended up having a very good and interesting week away.

Sue had been revisiting embroidery frames,this time to venture into texture.She had used cords made in a variety of materials and couched them to the surface.The addition of a washer creates another texture.A very interesting exercise.
