Trying to organise myself for the thursday art and sewing group

I have been happily busy this week making samples of alsorts of patchwork for the Thursday ladies. I always take one of my quilts to the yoga class and they asked if I would show them how to start off.
In between I found myself making the collage,something I should never do when sewing as paint and glue don't mix well with patchworking days.
I covered the heart in material I had dyed,embroidered the butterflys and flowers,covered the backs in matt medium so I could cut them out without them fraying.the hair is cut from lots and lots of pages from magazines. It was difficult to find the colour once I had begun so I ended up painting over her hair.The stars are actually quite shiny gold as are the dandylion heads I stamped on the left.
This is stll my old old computer,very slow  but though the colours aren't showing as well as I would like I've managed this blog.


  1. I haven't been blogging as much lately or leaving comments as there is just not enough hours in a day! But it's always fun to come here and see what you have been doing. This collage looks fantastic! I just love all the textures and details, great composition too.
