Black and White

We were supposed to have Spectrum meeting today but I had to postpone it to next week as we have a very important event to attend this afternoon. So I thought I would make the most of the morning and catch up with work I need to do for Spectrum.
We have embarked on a "Round Robin" exchange within the group to the theme "Black and White". Each member has started a textile piece using any medium they like. At the last meeting these were passed on to the next member to add to or alter as they wished. I received the little printed and appliqued panel above from Gill and alsmost immediately knew what I wanted to do.

I printed some more fabric which I added to the bottom of Gill's panel.

Then I added some applique and free machine embroidery

And this is the finished result ready to pass on to the next person.

I was inspired by the recent purchase of this beautiful book.

Must dash... there is someone in the hall rattling his car keys and we've a train to catch!


  1. So who's not drinking then?

  2. This is going to be a wonderful collaborative piece. Super base from Gill and I really like what you did with it. I wonder what the next person will do.


  3. These Round Robins are such a good idea, I love what you've done and I love that little red door!
    I am very tempted by that book!

  4. You have the most fun group projects! I hope you'll show us this one when it's finished!

  5. I love what you have done with Gill's piece of fabric. Angie's book is one of my favourites. Enjoy today.

  6. What a super project. I love the little houses and your additions to them. I hope we get to see the finished piece.

  7. Ooh I love what you've done Gina, I want it back! Hope you have a lovely time x

  8. Wonderful piece of work, I love your additions. that book looks interesting. Cheers

  9. Fascinating work and I hope we'll see how it changes on its journey.

  10. Inspired addition Gina. C

  11. Thats a great piece and project. I love the look of that book and have almost bought it a few times but I'm so afraid I'd be too influenced by it.
    I suddenly noticed that some elements of my embroidery are heading that way, but its purely coincidence.
    I have been enjoying your baking activities recently . I thought for a minute that you'd given up stitching. Great to see this latest post.

  12. Oh i cannot wait to see all these round robins finished - that looks lovely.
