After buying this house, I found out that one of the women I've known online for years, via the doll making community, lives nearby. I've been invited to their Tuesday meetings, but getting the wheels on here has kept me from attending. However, I get the group emails, and was able to participate in the fabric collage round robin with the group. There are eight of us playing. The only guidelines were that the base piece should be no larger than a fat quarter, and that we use at least two techniques with every go round.
My starter piece is all batiks and incorporates machine applique, couching, highlighting with paint, some beadwork. (Should be clickable to see larger.)
