A few months ago I saw a post on Facebook by Kate Bridger showing some 5 inch square pieces that she and others had done as part of a “Made on Monday” Challenge. What a great idea to keep the creative juices flowing – the pieces were small enough to make the challenge achievable. Lyn and I agreed and we decided we would participate.
I have included the link below for anyone who may be interested
Lyn created a spreadsheet – we both love a good list and the challenge began with the first piece finished on the 26th of April.
Whilst the challenge is “Made on Monday”, ours are actually made on Wednesday as Lyn and I follow our creative pursuits on most Wednesdays
We work shopped some ideas and noted down themes and techniques in order to have as many options as possible to kick start the pieces.
The first theme we both agreed to do was flowers
My first piece has a spray painted background which I did last year and now have an excuse to use and some minimal applique.
I have used freestyle machine stitching to create the flower petals and stems using rayon threads
The next 3 pieces will use the rest of the spray painted fabric, but more about them next time…… Cora
