I've been working on a couple of samples for my City & Guilds today, and finally managed to finish them this evening. The first is a cushion using manipulated fabric techniques, mainly chenille, with added buttons.
This is my Casalguidi Embroidery sample, which I was just going to bung in my sample folder, then remembered I had this little box frame.
I've also been having a go with the spindle whorls I bought at the NEC at the weekend. I'm quite pleased with the results, although it's not good enought to show here! I quite fancy spinning threads to use in textile work, and I must admit, I've always fancied owning a spinning wheel. Maybe something for my Christmas list?
