My Creative Space


I'm having a go at the dual image applique technique from Dilys Fronk's book.
I like the fact that you can use up scraps and there is no waste. I'm free motion quilting around the shapes which takes quite some time!


I'm using my dyed and painted fabrics. The idea is to use this technique for bags, quilts etc, but I'm taking baby steps with a teapot rest. I think I'd go nuts doing a quilt with all these tiny applique pieces!
Note to self - make sure fabric used for applique doesn't fray quickly!!


My first foray into polymer clay with some cutesy buttons.


I think someone missed us while we were away!

For some wonderfully creative spaces take a look here.

Very clever indeed. How creative. Love it all but have a real soft spot for those mushrooms.

The applique looks really intricate - you must have a lot of patience! Love the buttons too.
