The first stage was to contruct a piece of fabric by making lots of free-cut curves joined together. I could choose any colour combination, and decided to continue to work with pinks and greens, as I felt they were quite summery.
The next stage was to embellish the piece with ribbons, couched threads and machine embroidery in metallic and variegated threads. Lots of fun, especially since Ruth told me how to
stop the metallic thread from continually breaking or splitting by investing in a metallics needle! Pretty obvious, you'd have thought, but it didn't occur to me!
