More offerings

She had been looking at the design of a cushion in Newark Park and has been making drawings from it. Some of these are transferred to layout paper which she has pinned on to a background of coffee-dyed calico. 

Jane had been experimenting with a bamboo duster that had been washed in her washing machine, ending up as a lacy, delicate fabric. On to this she was laying images of insects, machine-embroidered on to silk hankies, to see how the two could combine. 

Anne Coleman, a former GTA member, came to join us for the Christmas lunch and brought this wonderful painted and drawn zig-zag book she had been working on, which describes all that she sees from her balcony high above the Downs. We loved it!   

Deryll had been doing Kasia's Advent Calendar (see Carol's in previous Post) and these are some of the pages from hers:

She had also remembered a way of making Christmas cards taught in City and Guilds by Mary Youles and brought a sheet of them to show us.
