Journals - Weeks 19, 20 and 21

Here we go. Week 19 is Red Squares, made using a technique from Pam Watts in "A Beginners Guide to Machine Embroidery".

Week 20, Anyone for Tea, uses the same piece of embroidery as Red Squares to make a tea cup and I appliqued this on a lush piece of blue velvet for contrast, then mounted it on some pretty blue batik.

Week 21, is some very simple fabric weaving with sari silk strips (I had originally planned to knit these, at the encouragement of an enthusiastic vendor, but that turned out to be very hard)

  2. You are doing really well in keeping these going. I fell off the bandwagon a while ago despite the best of intentions! Thanks for your comments re my quilt. Let me know when you are next in Wgtn and we can see if we can arrange to visit Asian Gallery, if you are interested.

    Keep up the great work. Philippa
