Sewing Circle

We settled down to stitching on the sewing plates we made last week. We achieved that lovely state where we were stitching together in companionable silence.

We also made some new plates for future weeks which we left to dry on the shelf.

More printing and glueing and rubbing

We spent this week making more materials to use in our samplers. More printing of leaves and flowers on to fabric, resulting in some stunning prints…

Some of the samplers are being assembled

with the fabric pieces glued down so that by the time they are dry they make a good base for starting stitching next week.
