I have found this time of self- isolating has been quite productive. I have a daughter who insists on shopping for me and that has left me free to play, it seems. I am in constant touch with my Hull Art Circle and we are all encouraging each other, daily.
Below two finished pieces that I am ready to show. Mostly I have been being ‘arty’, ie; drawing and painting.
1. Chinese/Japanese dragon in the padded style they often use for winter coats. Mostly handsewn.
2. Applique sunflower I made to hang in my front window – hence the wording
Hilary has been busy making scrubs and scrub bags for NHS staff. She even had time to use her scraps to make two mini sets of scrubs.
Val has crocheted these charming book marks , a request from her daughter-in-law, they went to nieces as an Easter present. Like most families, this year, they were unable to get together for Easter.
Val’s video session with her granddaughter this week was to teach her chicken stitch, the squares provide a ready made guide.
Update about Grosvenor Shows
You might have heard about our decision to postpone The Festival of Quilts to 2021, and unfortunately this means the work shortlisted for the exhibition will no longer be shown at the NEC this summer. However, we do still plan to host The Knitting & Stitching Shows in the autumn where the Fine Art Textiles Award will take pride of place among the Textile Galleries.
