I had a wonderful day with Lauren!
I am pretty tired but wanted to get some pictures on here tonight…
pinning blocks on fabric to a background ready to zig-zag all the edges
I have done a little of freeform machine embroidery many years ago, so it took a while to get the speed and rhythm sorted, and Lauren was completely calm about me breaking needles as I got going! 3 in all! She reassured me this was quite normal
then some filling in with kinda doodling stitching on the colour blocks before adding another layer of smaller shapes
The shop is a feast of colour and texture and all Lauren’s bits and pieces are a delight, even the bowl to hold the pins
It felt like doing an abstract painting. There is more work for me to do on it, other embellishments and filling in stitches, but Lauren was keen for me to do another panel ……
more pics tomorrow – must go to bed – yawn ….. zzzzzzz
