The journey continues 2015
We go forward as a group into our fourth year with the challenges of working our pieces in series at A2 size. The working theme for this year is 'Nature Abstracted'; we will be producing one piece of work every three months, four in total over the year.
As an added challenge this year a number of the group are preparing additional work for a group exhibit at the Taiwan International Show in 2016.
Our work from 2013 was exhibited at the ICHF Show in March at the NEC Birmingham and our 2014 work is travelling to Minnesota in the USA as a special exhibit.

For this piece I used the same fabrics I used for the butterfly and for the chrysalis. I also used some of my hand-dyed silk for the twig upon which the caterpillar is balancing. I used fusible applique for each of the fabric pieces and then machine stitched each pieces into place and free motion quilted. I like the way this caterpillar stands out against the "blue sky" background".

TRIFFACIOUS 1. I had fun creating these abstracted pieces with all four pieces on rust dyed background, linear work at the base of some wonderful commercial fabric. Hand drawn direct onto fabric, stitched and painted using Inktence pencils. Inspiration from wonderful tropical plants that develop in different light, hence the sun rising generating rays accross the land and water.
