I've been working!

This is what I have done from what we learnt last month.  I very much enjoyed working with the tin foil background.  I have put it underneath the chiffon's on the dark background embroideries and it gives a nice sheen.

Expand & Stitch

The snow may keep us in our homes but it does not stop us stitching! I hope you all managed to get to the Knit and Stitch show at the weekend and no one got stuck in Sunday's snow.  It took me 3 1/2 hours to do a 20 minute journey!!

Below is an experimental sample using xpandaprint (puff paint).
