A Japanese Session

On Wednesday our little sewing group met up, the lady who was hosting this time had just come back from a tip to Japan
So set us a little Japanese  project to try with some supplies she brought back.
Sasiko stitching it was what the Japanese used to use for decorative mending stitching.
She had lots of lovely bits to show us from her trip
there are seven of us in the group, Jennie couldn't make today as she was at her quilting group and Julia was away visiting family.
December I was hosting and we did lampshade making
Jennie made hers from some Japanese fabric she patch worked together, Sian was also on a Japanese theme with some Kimono fabric, Sue made some 3d cherry blossom to decorate hers
I did a christmas winter scene for my one, 
 January Sian was hosting and we did some decorated candles using there different techniques
 Its a lovely group and we have been meeting up for just over two years now, taking turn about hosting. 
Next month we are dabbling in weaving.

Dragons and Photos

I have been working on some new products to take down to the shop
 Dragon Dream Catchers
 I have been using a mix of materials,
 Leather, vinyl, velvet, lace and denim, the dragons are 3d and mounted in a 12inch hoop, they have gone up for sale in the shop for £32.
Another project I have been working on is converting pet photos to embroidery.
It started with a photo of Sol and Tess I did last year and turned them into cushions 

A few people had seen these and I was asked if I could do pets

This horse belongs to a friend
This is Wolfie who belongs to another friend, these embroidery's take a good few hours to stitch out and I am mounting them on 8x8 canvas.
