Work in Progress

Today I had another session on my Xpression

I decided to use a printed polyester fabric as the foundation,because my aim was to embellish rather than felt;
In my eyes the irregular fabric pattern was loosely based on tropical flowers and I thought this would allow for trying both silk tops,wool roving and some Angelina fibres.
Being totally new to this form of embellishing/needle punching I must admit to only having the vaguest idea of what I’m doing………probably breaking heaps of so called rules in the process.

Anyway my plan for this piece is to adapt it to my journal quilt format……..
only it will have a shaped base rather than a regular rectangular shape……..
like the banners of old!
Once I get it shaped and backed I hope to add hand worked embellishing and doo- dads and make it all just a “little bit crazy” Posted by Picasa
