I have been brave and created two hand embroidered pieces for an exhibition in my village. The theme of 'Renewal and Regeneration' was set. My pieces are entitled Transfuse (obviously linked to blood transfusion) and Transplant (based on bone marrow). They each measure approx 8x6cm and are mounted on silk covered canvas board. I would have had them box framed but didn't have time. They are made using 5 layers of dyed fabric and cut back using the reverse applique method. Some of the tiny areas were a real challenge! Anyway I was very pleased and surprised to be given a commendation for Transfuse. Hope you like them.

Hi just wanted to tell all of you who follow me that I am stopping the Diploma for now. There have been a number of issues leading up to this so I am giving myself a rest. I shall be trying to do some things in my own time and will post from time to time so don't delete me! I am enjoying reading all your posts even if I don't write any comments, so keep up the good work! I hope summer school is fun, I shall miss seeing you all. Love Paula x
