My Creative Space


Ok, there isn't much to show really, but at least it isn't blocks this week.


This is a pile of bright fabric that I am using tonight in a class I am taking. I am going to learn Needleturn Applique. Why? Because I can!


I have moved away from the usual type of fabrics that people select for such a thing. The ones I have seen so far (at work) have chosen the usual patterned mixed bunch of fabrics. The design is going to be a flower vase with a long wavy stalk & three flowers on it. Lots of petals! Ekkkk.... So I should know what I am doing by the end. So stay tuned for updates on what the fabrics turn into. I think mine will be very unusual compared to most but at the moment brights are my thing.

I reckon it will brilliant. Sometimes the patterns are just too much:-)

Sounds great! I know what you mean, sometimes it's the simple ones that look the best, no patterns to get in the way of the design. Good luck!

I LOVE learning new craft techniques. The colours look great and I'm sure they will be a lot easier on the eye to work with than patterns. Good luck!
