Hurray! I'm back on line again. Our hard drive gave up, causing us to lose lots of files. Then we had more trouble trying to get started again but after 2 computer technicians & lots of re-installing of software it's finally sorted.
The above photo is for a challenge at the next meeting of a machine embriodery group (the 84 Group) I'm a member of. Everyone has to make an A3 sized piece of fabric which will be cut into pieces, one for everyone. We then have to use all the different pieces we receive to make something of our choice like a bookcover, cushion or bag. Should be an interesting challenge, I'll post a photo when it's done, although as it's just before I leave for Europe that could be a while!
Tommorrow I'm attending a new group called Innovative Stitches associated with the WA Embroiderers' Guild which I will join if we like each other. They're working on the theme of WA's maritime history & plan to have an exhibition in the future.
