Landscape Sampler

This is my first attempt at painting fabric and stitching on top. The painting bit was difficult (I used silk fabric paints on calico) but there may have been some treatment on the fabric and I didn't wash it first (life's too short!!).

I have one more sample to do and that finishes the first module of my City & Guilds course.

I'm also working on my Studio Journals course and will post something from that as soon as I manage to make a page that isn't a total mess! It would be nice to blog the process of creating something from studio journal to finished piece. But that's for another day...


  1. Nice effect ... and an interesting idea. What's a City Guild course?

  2. Its a course in Embroidery. City & Guilds is the governing body of the course.
