Playing this afternoon

Made up this little piece (5 1/2" square) as a practise for a much large piece - just laid down torn strips of fabric, free motion stitched over the pieces then added the grasses and trees.  The large piece won't be anything like this apart from probably same techniques (maybe).  The large piece can't be shown when it's finished as it's being entered into a juried competition.  Really enjoyed this.

Our exhibition in Warwick

 This is our Broadstrokes group plus friend Annamaria.  The red ribbon was officially cut to open our exhibition - Margaret: Contemplation, Conversations, Creations.  I've been slow in adding stuff this month, this opened at the end of August and closed this weekend.  We had a great time at the opening and were very pleased with our display.
 Kathryn's work -
 One of our free hanging pieces - there were four - Friends, Fade, Flowers and Fruit. Think this one is our Fade one.
Two of my pieces -' Winter' is the top canvas and 'Portrait of another Lady' (below).
