Another new project for 2017......

Another new project which I am very excited to try this year and which has been on my 'to do' list for a while, is a project from the book 'Applique Art' by Abigail Mill.  I have had this book in my collection for some time and love the look of all the projects in it.



The book uses a technique called 'freehand machine embroidery' which I attended a workshop on towards the beginning of last year and which I really enjoyed. I was pleased with the results of the workshop.





I recently discovered that Abigail is going to be holding a workshop in Norwich, where my youngest daughter is at university and close to where my parents live.  I am very excited to have been able to secure a place on the workshop and, I can't wait to see what exciting new techniques I learn and what I can create while I am there! I also get to visit my family at the same time.... win-win!!

I will let you know how I get on!!

  17. Oooh, I think I will have to see if my library has the book too! I love the flower "drawing" with the bee!
    I've just bought a darning foot for my machine as I was thinking of doing some FMQ, so I might try this too!
    Looking forward to hearing how you got on on your workshop!
