It's fleece might have been white as snow once upon a time but its fur has greyed over the years, having been much loved and much travelled (Abigail has been to England, France, Switzerland and Italy). But Emma still loves her little lamb.
So, when I made a winter "silkie" for Emma, I machine-embroidered a lamb onto it - much to Emma's delight.
This photo gives a clearer view of the embroidered lamb:
Last weekend, I played around with fusing fabrics. I wasn't very pleased with my results, except for these floaty pyramids, made from shot organza. They are like little clouds and look as if they could float away at any moment.
I am exploring ways to alter fabric and to produce individual pieces of a high quality. I am currently experimenting with mixed media and I also enjoy working with more familiar materials and techniques. I hope to eventually develop my own style - my own visual language.
