A Day at Cutting Edge Textiles

I belong to a group in Ngaruawahia called Cutting Edge Textiles. They meet twice a month at the weekends but as I work most weekends I don't always get to go along. This session was stitching on existing fabric. I had this sort of Jacobean type curtain fabric that I had for some time so I took that along. It wasn't a very productive day as I was too busy talking and looking at what other people were doing. Being inspired to trey some different ideas with geli printing and just generally catching up. Sisha embroidery is always my nemesis and I had a Quilting Arts magazine which had a slightly different approach so I worked that into the centre of he flower. If I can't go to India maybe I can reproduce some of the lovely embellished textiles they produce. I have started to add more stitch and beads around the petals. Not sure where I am going with this
