I have been planning the projects I need to do next, so I laid them out on my worktop this morning.
I have a Doors and Windows challenge to do, there is no pressure involved here as we are only making these for ourselves on the Textile Challenge list I belong to. The list owner is Carol Taylor of Postcards and stuff and her first language like myself is Welsh. She teaches textiles at a Secondary School in South Wales. Here are a few things I have been working on for this project.
I have a textile page to do for my FAF group swap this month and the challenge this time for me is to make a page using Symbols of Celestial bodies. I'm making it for Kim SkybellArts @ Blogger who is a Taurus and I designed this on the computer and I'm now going to make a stitched piece inspired by it. I hope she will like it.
Another challenge for me is to make brooches to swap for my Surface Design group. I designed these on the computer a while back when challenged by Maggie Grey Workshop on the Web to design brooches on the computer. I'm going to use these in some way.
Here is a design on the computer, it's not yet stitched. This was my inspiration for the bag you see below. This bag will be Auctioned for Earth Day by Joanna of SerenityisBliss, Surface Design group owner . I shall be sending it to her tomorrow hopefully. It's quilted and includes handmade paper and organza, with additional slips digitized by me and stitched on my Bernina 180 machine
This is the front of the bag.
Here is the back.
I also need to make some samples using Nappy Liners to send a friend who sent me some Misty Fuse. This will be my first job this afternoon.
