New wind direction

The wind changes direction and suddenly there is a whole new scene, the old familiar things disappear or are transformed and new possibilities open up!
On a personal note I decided it was time to get some "work in progress" now that we are forced to spend a bit more time in the house due to the weather. I used my new flexible tripod -

- and had it clinging to a chair back to take these pics of wip -

- layers of voile on vilene with fused shapes covered with foil, zapped, then some machine sewing ...

a transferred altered image with stitching ...

and finally this photo of a flower which became this -
and then this - transferred to fabric and stitched

Time for a cuppa now! Enjoy the snow if you have any!


  1. There ain't 'alf some clever blighters!

  2. Ooh Julia, gorgoeus! Do you give lessons?! Wonderful effects and just the right amount of stitch. I like all three pieces but especially the second one.

  3. Hi Julia, you have been busy, love your work particularly the agapanthus transfer on the fabric. I have been forced to stay indoors due to the heat here, 43deg. today, uggh, but the only thing i have managed to do is clean out some cupboards and the pantry, not half as exciting.

    Best wishes for a creative 2010

  4. Claire, thank you for your comment - can't find an email address for you. I knew somebody would know what the flower is called! Be blessed!
