In the Beginning

Just to show how industrious you all can be I have posted a montage of several of you working at the very first workshop in sunnier and warmer days.

Winter Robin

I thought you might like to see my robin - I have almost completed the frame but am not sure how to finish it. I have enjoyed this project - I am tempted to embroider a different bird for each season!

February Meeting

One of the techniques to be demonstrated in February is Carrickmacross. Snowdrops inspired the Carrickmacross sample, but any spring flower may be used. Small flowers make it more difficult to undertake and therefore the Hellebore (Lenten Rose) may be a good choice for your first attempt at this technique.

There will also be a small bag project.

Snow at Pannal

Inspiration for your books ladies!!

Obviously someone was able to get through the snow with their camera during the weeks of wintery weather we have all experienced.

January saw everyone creating small birds with padded bodies and wings. Textured or painted backgrounds were added and the piece of work was then enhanced with a collaged frame created from a variety of oddments such as twigs, leaves, feathers, lace, fabric, acrylic paint, etc.

Happy New Year

As most of the Pannal Textile Group can access a computer we thought it might be fun for you to become 'Bloggers'. It will enable you to post pictures and text regarding the pieces of work you are involved with.

The most important thing is to have fun and share your ideas.
