Fibre Arts - Ballarat, Day 1

Fibre Arts for 5 days at Ballarat Grammar School.
 Woke this morning to very brisk air but clear skies.

 The class I am doing is "Using your machine as a Creative Tool"by Kathryn Hamer-Fox from South Africa. Our first exercise was to write our names using free motion embroidery on our machines.
 I have been collecting gingko and Japanese Maple leaves for my inspiration.
 To start the process, trace a leaf.....
 .....add snippets of fabric onto to the leaf and stitch over.
.......and fill in using machine embroidery. Several leaves made.
