I have had a play around with different methods to create some backgrounds for the next chapter.First a photo of some hand dyed threadsand a few pieces of fabric.I dyed some lace too as I thought I might bond it to some fabric for a background.

hi Jenn, long time since i've commented but have been watching all your excellent progress. Love the sketches for Sian's competition....I'm still working through Mod 5 but very slowly! I've also been having trouble putting comments on blogs....they never seem to go through first time, not sure when and why this happens. Maggie
