Back again

I have not blogged for nearly a year, and  I have found that I was not as productive, partly because I was not blogging, but also because the Tangled Textiles Group finished.  I tried lots of challenges and workshops, but found that it was impossible for me to stick to anything, especially if it was an every day commitment because there are periods where I am not at home. for the next few weeks, I will try and go through some of the things I am doing.

My last posts here were about journal quilts and I have attempted to keep doing these with the help of Kate Bridger, who is hosting a Made on Monday five inch square challenge on her site.  I have been absent for a month or so, but am hoping to join in again.  Participants also post their work on the textile arts facebook  page.

Here are my first seventeen contributions

They are all on my favourite theme of leaves and use a variety of techniques including free motion embroidery, hand embroidery and thread painting and a wide variety of fabrics including hand printed fabric.

Hope you enjoy these and I will be back with more as I do them

  1. So nice to see your beautiful work altogether! Your leaves are all wonderful - I love seeing the different materials and techniques.

    ( I know exactly what you're feeling - it has been the same for me! )

  2. So nice to see you back Vicki! I have always enjoyed your work with the leaf motif. I've checked out MoM and it looks interesting and challenging. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your pieces as you do them.
