WOYWW #244-Hello again

Hello All, I'm back again, hopefully for a bit longer than last time.
For those in the know My Mum was taken back into hospital just after Christmas with a massive infection.  I got her out on Monday, and she is much better this time.  We are now building her up.  
I have been doing a Creative Embroidery course which started before Mum became ill, and this has kept me going.  So my desk today is not my craft room but the dinning table.  We have been looking at design, so took leaves , so my first pic is the design I created using Ivy leaves.
 the yellow block is part of my design I used to make a design block, which can then be used to make any pattern you want.
 This pic shows the blocks plus the start of my fabric design.  It has a base of stabilisher, then silk and 5 layer of organza.  I have then free machined my design  on the reverse.
 This is the front of my design and I have started to cut out layers , to show the different layers of organza.

To join us on the biggest blog hop go over to the lovely Julia at Stamping Ground .  Have a good day.
