I'm very excited to be taking part in this exhibition, something new working with 30 other artists using the same fabric design as inspiration. The colours and design are bold, the style is 70's. the pattern is Calypso made by Gummerson Fabrics.

My 'Piece Of Cloth' work in progress.

Sketching out some ideas
Designing faces,  
Machine embroidered face. I'm thinking about where to place her on the background. My idea is to stretch the fabric onto an embroidery hoop, hand stitch the face in place and then paint her using water colours. I'm still toying with other ideas, but so far this is the one I like the most.
