And as our our theme today was transfer dyes, I dyed some fabrics and stitched these to make my postcard which I'm not that happy with. Rushed it at the last minute unfortunately.
However the postcards from everyone else are fabulous and so varied in style and technique. This is Sandy's based on the tulip staircase at the Queen's house in Greenwich.
Lynne's is inspired by a statue by a French motorway.
Lynda went to Latvia.
Joan stayed at home but was inspired by an image in a book.
Bernice went on a course with Ruth Issett and made some printed and dyed fabrics which she used.
But she also went to Japan!
And Ann was inspired by French Sunflowers.
Joan also completed a stunning piece of work which she has been planning and working on for most of last year. She started with some extensive research on celtic designs, did lots of samples, tried different techniques and all her hard work has paid off with this beautiful piece of embroidery. The photograph does not do it justice.
