Show and Tell – February 2021


Fiona’s Show and Tell – The title is “Beech in Winter”. It was inspired by a workshop by Vinny Stanley, but adapted to use an offcut from a quilt, covered in tulle, which then made it easy to applique the leaves to the surface, and then add some embroidery embellishment with perle cotton. I used an actual winter beech leaf as the template for the transparent leaves – which are similar to the dried leaves that stay on the trees through winter.

Suz - I'm thinking of using this on the cover of a fabric book I hope to make for some of my embroideries.
Tina - This fantastic cat pillow was made by Carol and which I purchased through the on-line November 2020 Artisan Sale supporting Jamaican Self Help Canada.
Suzanne - I decided in Dec. 2019 that I would record all the important events in my life for 2020 by creating a series of embroidered Twinchies, small squares 2” X 2”. Little did I know at that point in time that 2020 was going to prove itself to be a most troublesome year.
