You may remember this piece of work that was passed on to me from Gill at our last Spectrum meeting. One of our "round robin" pieces.
I thought about adding eyelashes... or lips... but in the end I made a box... one of those "middle of the night" flashes of inspiration. Although I'm not so sure that Jenny, who has to work on it next would descibe it as inspired!
Each of us started a small piece of work on the theme of back and white, using any method we liked. These have now been passed on to two other people, each having a month to add their contribution. When we met up yesterday, it was amazing to see how different they all look and we decided that this would be the final month. As well as adding (or taking away/cutting up etc) the final recipient this month would have to finish the piece ready for display.
I wish I had photographed them all at each stage... but I didn't! I'll be sure to photograph all the finished results next month though.
Catriona had done wonderful things with these leaves.
This shirt started as a tiny piece of printed fabric, which Angela changed into a pieced patchwork and then Ann cut it up and appliqued it to a shirt.
I started this piece which was a long strip of felted fabric. Jenny altered the shape, adding surface decoration and then Thelma added embroidered seed heads on net.
This piece has been worked on by Gill, me and Jenny...
And this piece was started by Ann, has been worked on by Margaret and Gill... and I now have to finish it. Watch this space!
The other exciting thing at yesterday's meeting were these wonderful Macarons that Jenny brought for us all to sample. I tried the salted caramel... and the lemon which were both equally wonderful!
Jenny's daughter has just started a new business making these macarons which are sure to be a huge success!
