We had a lovely group meeting yesterday and we've finally decided on a name. After several suggestions - some more appropriate than others - we finally arrived at a name we were all happy with. "Gina's Babes" was rejected outright (after much laughter) as it was felt none of us really qualified as "babes" and it sounded too much like a dance troupe or girl band! "Free Motion" and "Stitched Up" were also rejected because of connotations implied! We ended up with a short list of four - "In Stitches", "Nimble Fingers", "Zig Zag" and "Stitchwise" - all strong contenders but after a vote the winner was "Zig Zag"
The beautiful collection of ATCs above were the result of our challenge last month and they all went into a group swap. I came home with the lovely blue one in the middle made by Sandy. I'll post a close up when I've got a bit more time. Below is a small selection of work produced since the last meeting. Our theme was foils and gilding plus working with metallic threads. Some fabulous work as always. I find it it truely inspirational being able to work with such a talented group. Looking forward to Zig Zag next month!
