Lyn Rochester - Fowers, Leaves and Insects - Stitch Club 15/4/2017

Lyn brought several examples of her own work, including her Green Man (decorated with many insects) just returned from the Capability Brown exhibition.

Most of us focused on the leaves, despite her delicious depictions of dandelions and sweetpeas. Lyn has a wide selection of cardboard template leaves she had made from her collection of dried real leaves. We had a good selection of fabrics Lyn had dyed herself to choose from. She suggested that we embroider our leaves before cutting the fabric - that being less fiddly. Thanks to Anne and Monika an iron was available to use on bondaweb. The stitch club Bailgate members were joined by three IMPart members, which was delightful.
