Secret Garden

Hello again and hoping that you have had a great weekend, I wanted to share this piece which has become my "secret garden" - I am not quite sure who lives in there but it looks warm and inviting! It may be hard to see all the stitching but it is heavily machine stitched to enhance the watercolours and wool rovings.

Some detail photos

This is watercolour on muslin, wool roving and threads!
About 18" x 18"

~ have a great week ~

Halton Youth Symphony Orchestra Auction

I just wanted to report back on the opening of the Halton Youth Symphony Orchestra. It took place Tuesday past and was a huge success. There was a big turnout and it seemed that all the fibre art pieces recieved bids which was great news for us.

This is an image of the HYS taken from the website which is the website which details  the various fibre art projects paired with classical music events.

We had a great evening with lots of questions about fibre art and also comments on the texture and colour of the pieces. You can view the works by visiting the website and following the links to Halton Youth Symphony Orchestra.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend,
