May meeting 2014

All of our meetings are special but today was Very Special
 "Happy Birthday Dina"
 ...and thank you to Di for a wonderful cake
 We all enjoyed it!!
There was more to celebrate...our work
Jude's "multi-coloured swop-shop" is finished
 Close-up of Jude's piece in french knots
 Shows the "Ice" fabric which has been appliqued
 This is Di's piece of a garden/vegetable plot on Jude's printed background. Ingenious!
 Ice is making great headway with buttonhole stitch on a block printed background. Such a lovely colour scheme
 Dina's work made a lot of progress today...and on her special day too...
Janet L. has used two of her "lucky dip" fabrics. One is being cut up and stitched and then appliqued in pieces onto the second background fabric
Clare is now well into the swing of the project...
...enjoying weaving techniques through the Ice fabric

Elaine's piece with wonderful hand made beads
Joy has used a lot of different techniques including a chiffon piece appliqued over cross stitched cords. A lot of texture is very evident 
Margaret B has the most wonderful colour palette

Pat P has mastered the Herringbone stitch to great effect
Lillian's French knots make a very pretty garden of flowers
The Ice fabric has become a trellis for the flowers
Other work continued
and the concentration
and the decision making
...from Lillian's book cover
to Pat W's soluble "Looking Through"
 Our next meeting is June 12th - hope you can make it
