It was good to get home too, with no particular deadlines except for my French knot embroideries which are ongoing. Luckily I have until the Autumn to finish them.
I take part in the Contemporary Quilt Group journal challenge and have finished four more, May, June, July and August. these four pieces all use as a basis scraps of fabrics from previous pieces as their starting point. My challenge for has been to transform them into some sort of credible design and if possible reflect what is going around me at the time, in true Journal fashion.
It reminds me of the view across the valley in the winter.
In this piece I stitched elements from the landscape, leaves, trees, hedges and walls on to the background.
This time a buzzard was being mobbed by rooks so these were also appliquéd on top.
