K I’m getting ready for a workshop I’m tutoring for WAFTA on free machine embroidery on solubles & sheers. The flowers above are some of my samples. I’ve also made a finished piece which I’ve framed – it will be a sample and also for the Designing Women exhibition ‘Seams and Layers’ which opens 22rd […]
Above: multi layered prints using stencils & stamps. The circle print is an exercise from the online course I was doing – playing with transparency and printing shapes – not quite sure where to go with it next. Below using the leftover same translucent paints to print in my visual diary. I made some glue […]

The challenge was to research unity and make a small quilt using that design principle. So I used circles, repetition, a […]

This is my cleanup sheet, it’s quite nice too. Below Gelli prints on paper.
We’ve had several days of lovely spring-like weather and I’ve been in the studio doing some Gelli printing on iron-on interfacing as seen on the Gelli blog. Back left of the pic is my sketchbook.
