Had an inspiring time at the London Sewing Show where I attended a couple of good workshops. Wendy Dolan showed a lovely technique for textile arts. I am trying it out and will post the results of my experiments later on. Her method involves stitching a basic background in white textiles of different sorts before painting with fabric paint and over stitching with freehand machine embroidery. Not a technique for anyone with a unruly hoarding habit as it encourages keeping lots of scraps of cloth and using bits and pieces!
Have a look at her work http://www.wendydolan.co.uk/html/index6.htm
The contemporary quilting was also fantastic!
Weather has been awful today, 40 mph winds and a very sharp shower. All the seedlings had to stay sheltered in the conservatory today.
Put off the experimental hot cross buns today - going to be plenty of indoor days this week as the forecast is awful.
