Show And Tell April 2012

We had lots of brilliant work to share this month. Both Bernadette and Janet M brought finished pieces that they had started in our Polish Rhapsody dayschool.


2012-04-23 Show and Tell Bernadette's Cushion


Bernadette has worked her finished tree into this lovely cushion, with lots of fly stitches and beading. The end result is really delicate and beautiful.


2012-04-23 Show and Tell Janet M's Barge


Janet's piece is her entry for the Our Industrial Heritage competition, and is also reminiscent of a recent canal boat trip she went on. She's used the couched wools really effectively to form the arched bridge over the boat.


2012-04-23 Show and Tell Margaret's Book


Margaret also brought her entry for the competition, which she has worked up into a book since we saw it last month. This page details the names of some of the great figures involved in the Industrial Revolution, and some of their creations.


2012-04-23 Show and Tell Betty's Spaghetti Junction Cushion


Betty took her inspiration for the competition from a legacy of the Industrial Revolution, mass transport. She has hand dyed these fabrics and printed then stitched an aerial view of Spaghetti Junction here in Birmingham. This has produced a lovely abstract pattern.


2012-04-23 Show and Tell Betty's Bag


Betty also brought this bag she has made with her hand dyed fabrics - the colours and patterns are gorgeous.


If you've got something you've made recently (or not so recently!) please bring it along to a future Guild meeting - we'd love to see it!
