Maggi at work
First attempt below; front and back. I worked on a piece of dyed silk and laid wool and silk fibres on top before wetting, soaping and rolling. The final step involved whacking and bashing - great fun :-) Hopefully if you click on it you can see that the silk puckers and creates a lovely effect.
Second piece; front and back.......my fav one. Looking forward especially to sewing on this. Not sure which side to use though!
Maggi kindly gave me a piece of blue cotton velvet to use for my Spirit Cloth cushion.
I extended the stitching out onto the velvet.....
I now want to find something to stitch around the edge........maybe :-/
Peachy has been helping me choose fibres and fabrics for my latest sewing project.....
I can empathise with that.... ;-)
And finally.....DH and I decided to make the most of the glorious weather and went to Monsal Head in Derbyshire last weekend. We haven't been there for years and had forgotten how stunning it is.

If ever you get a chance....go there :-)
