Hi, this is the first piece I created with my embellisher.  The base fabric is from a Stef Francis experimentation pack, all the other bits and pieces are from my horde.  I have mounted the piece on a frame over batting, the edges left an awful lot to be desired so to 'hide' them I painted a strip of pelmet vilene with fabric paints then glued the strip around the frame.  The design just happened, I fed the pieces under the needles and magic happened - I often just go with the flow and see what happens this time I think I was lucky!

Hi, Leslie


I really love your piece.  You mentioned a "Stef Francis experimentation pack."  Was this something you purchased?  I love her work also and would like to learn more about her techniques.  Any advice or info of where I can learn about her techniques?

I also have an embellisher and want to do more with it.  I really love what you've done.
