Thanks to Linda from Blue Eyed Girl, I discovered this fabulous quilt artist Jude Hill. After seeing Linda's pretty project I felt inspired to have a go myself so I have signed up for Jude's Spirit Cloth Workshop "Cloth to Cloth".
I sat up watching most of the videos last night and today started to sort out bits and pieces of scraps to start weaving my cloth. Essentially, this course is to make new cloth from scraps of old cloth by simple weaving, hand stitching and embellishment - right up my street. I am starting with a small block first of all, to see how I go.
I have used strips from some patterned silk fabrics I bought at last year's Knitting & Stitching Show, plus some of my avocado dyed lace and broderie anglaise and other lace. I will be hand stitching this when I have finished piecing it together and will post more about it when it is done.
