Wolverhampton Embroiderers Guild regional day

I had a lovely day on June 25th (my birthday as it happens) at Wombourne, we had a very interesting lecture by Maggie Grey on old walls and ancient Halls. I bought some beautiful silk chiffon scarves for my Nuno felt making workshop in a few weeks from the 'silk route'. There was a competition on Fresco's and Fragments, I entered this embroidery, it didn't win never mind, I enjoyed making it. It is now for sale in gallery at 12 Eccleshall.

My embroidery workshop

Well we all had a wonderful day making free machinery bird pictures, it was hard work but I really enjoyed it and cant wait for the next one. Here are some photos of work in progress and some finished pieces.

Didn't they do well and Bruce used to say.

summer silk scarves

My latest creations using pure silk chiffon with silk and pure merino wool ends.
The chiffon is bonded with the merino wool fibres using a Japanese nuno felting technique.
I don't know how to turn it the right way so you will have to bend your head

For some reason this one came out the right way.
This is taken in my mums front garden not sure what this plant is called but its fabulous.
I will be teaching this technique on 16th July at 'Unit Twelve' Tixall Heath farm Stafford.
These are for sale in Eccleshall gallery at the moment and when I have made some more they will be in other galleries
