My Creative Space


This week I've been hand painting and free motion machine quilting - both a lot of fun!
I've been making needle books for my friends in my stitching group for Christmas presents. Now the pressure is on because tonight is our last meeting for the year and the needle books aren't finished!


This has been great free motion practice for me and I think I'm starting to get a feel for it now.


I used salt resists on the hand painted fabric for lots of texture.


Love the colours and textures in this one. Hopefully I'll get these finished early enough to photograph the final product.

Of course, Thursday is our busiest day of the week with piano lessons and errands. Wish me luck!
