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.
