Viv had been stitching a neutral coloured piece onto a neutral linen.She kept to one stitch and varied the size and thickness of the threads .A final embellishment with neutral beads and sequins completes the piece.It is very interesting just how much colour there is in this 'no colour ' embroidery.

Another textured piece which has been recycled from an older piece.She has cut it into smaller pieces and plans to mount them in some small deep frames.A different treatment will make them be seen anew.

Carol,meanwhile ,had been persevering with her ribbon embroidery.Not one to give up she had stitched several small flowers and tried out some stitches.Unlike thread the ribbon takes some effort to feed through the fabric,making these neat pieces belie the difficulty.
