Some rather splendid homework!

The is 'Bet Noire' by Mary - just fabulous.

This post is about the homework from the constructed textiles weekend of my Experimental Textiles course. The idea was to use either, knit, weave or felt to construct a three dimensional sample. I was so pleased with what they produced I thought the work deserved it's own post.

Lovely felt bowls made in the washing machine around balls.

Mary really enjoyed stitching into the felt . . .

 . . .  and more of Mary's beautiful stitch . . . 

Kat had fun working into her paper collage from the previous weekend.

Barbara made the fabulous vessel - she has part felted it, then she will be stitching into it and felting it again.

Val created some exquisite textures with stitch on this divine little bowl . . 

   . . . and more on this faerie like sample . . 

This is one of Babara's woven samples . . 

 . . and some of her stunning felted knitting . . 

Just gorgeous.

The group have been working hard and are producing some beautiful samples.

I am now in Dublin enjoying a few days of R and R with my cousin Emer who lives over here before The Knitting and Stitching Show at the RDS. It is going to be great fun. Laura, Kevin and Viv are arriving on Tuesday and we will all be moving into a house together for the rest of the week. I am so looking forward to seeing them. I think a party will be in order . . . . 

Will post a bit more about what I am up to over here on Monday.

Hello Jill and Diana, not long till Harrogate.
