We went on a Gillian Travis course which was held at Rydal Hall in the Lake district - Rydal in fact.
|We were sent out to photograph anything and everything, because the weather was lovely when we arrived on 5 November. This is the photo I decided to use and Gillian said I should crop it and use only a part of it.|
|So here is the cropped bit, which I traced from the photograph and stitched on my fabric.|
|I then painted it with intense blocks (thanks T+J - a very useful gift!!)|
|and a bit more paint...|
|and more paint|
|until I was happy with the result|
|I wrote a poem around the edge with the sewing machine.|
So that was the first day of the course.....
