Catch-up and April workshops....

Hi everyone,

I've been bothered over the last couple of weeks with that horrid cough/cold bug I had not long ago, I think and hope I've seen the back of it now, so I'm eager to get on with things.

Carolyn's last post showed you what we've been up to on our 'turtle' day this week. We're making new pieces for a future workshop on Transfer Dyes. Here's the one I've been working on, I've now free machine quilted the background, added some hand embellishments with french knots and seed stitch.

The textures created with transfer dyes are wonderful and it's such an easy technique. I've really enjoyed re-visiting this piece, it's funny how you leave a piece for a while, have a fresh look at it and it all comes together. When the stitching is finished I'm going to mount it onto a 12" canvas, I'll take a proper photo then.

Here is a reminder of our workshop dates for next month........

Thursday 11th April - Dissolvable Fabric at Fraddon Village Hall.

Monday 22nd April - Doodle Cushion at Coast and Country Crafts & Quilts, Perranarworthal.

As usual all the info, photos and bookings are on our web site, look forward to hearing from you.

That's it for now, have a great weekend.


  1. I absolutely adore the colours on this piece. Transfer dyes are fun, there's always a little bit of uncertainty about what you will produce.

  2. Hi Naida, I agree they are fun, I've enjoyed re-visiting them, now I'm hooked again,
