ATC
I haven't done much machine embroidery lately. Just finished this ATC to get back into it. The swirls are done with Dispersal dyes on poly satin which I then Cloqued to make it dimensional & free stitched the satin onto a painted cotton background.

I'm making some small traditional quilts at the moment for a project that the 84 Group is doing. The quilts are used in hospitals to cover the humidicribs of premature babies so their eyes aren't damaged by the lights or to wrap stillborn babies when they are presented to their parents. Bigger quilts are given to children who are very sick in hospital but as I'm not a quilter I'm doing some small ones. Our meeting is on Sunday & I hope to get 4 done. 2 finished so far.

Fibre & Stitch
I should mention Fibre & Stitch, a new on line magazine. I will be contributing a piece for the third issue. Find out more at the link.
