Cloth to Cloth online Workshop

This is a quick post to tell you about an online workshop Cloth to Cloth by Jude Hill. The workshop will begin on May 15th and it will go for 4 weeks. I have been following Spirit Cloth by Jude Hill ever since I started blogging. She is a strong influence for me to start free form stitching and I love it. I'm so delighted that Jude has started teaching an online workshop. I'm so looking forward to it.

I stitched this up when we went for a picnic at our local beach on Mother's Day. I never leave home without a bag of fabric and threads. You never know what will inspire you walking along the beach. This is supposed to be an island with waves going in different directions. Tilt your head a little to the left when you are viewing this. It should be set on point. Notice the cracked shell? It cracked when I tried to scan it. I will have to glue them together I think...!

A basket full of Japanese fabric in taupe range that I will be using for the workshop. I will also dye some threads to use for the workshop too. I think I will dye some in bronze, brown and tan.

Remember "Pieces of Japan" that I stitched throughout Japan? It's really a start of my free form stitching. I found it so relaxing to just start with a piece and then to add more pieces once the first one is done. After a little while the design elements immerse within itself. Cloth to Cloth will cover quilt weaving and free form stitching. Jude has another two workshops to follow this one and I've already put my name down for Patchwork Beasts that is due to start later on in the year. If interested, please visit Spirit Cloth - online workshops.

It looks beautiful and I can see the sea as you said. I also love your new banner. Is that a quilt you made?

Oh that looks interesting.......
I really must finish a few things before I start more.......a baby quilt for a baby due any minute....my portrait in the Bumblebeans challenge and my Amish challenge with Tonya's group.....but oh doesn't this workshop sound divine? Not too mention my shakespeare in the park that is still on design wall!

Of course I went right over to see about the workshop and if I could get in and thank heavens it is sold out so I have been protected from starting a new project.

I look forward to seeing yours Nat!

Looks like a fantastic class, yes it's sold out for now. I don't need another project just yet. LOL Love your little seaside quilt it's adorble. I hope the glue holds or perhaps you can get a replacement shell.
I look forward to following along on your project for the class.

Your piece is wonderful. I like the broken shell, it's a great focus. I'm in love with your pieces of Japan, sigh. I shall go check out the link. It all sounds like fun to me.

Hey Nat, Love the spirit cloth. Might you leave the broken shells? They remind me that things in life don't always turn out like we want them. That there is beauty even in broken pieces. Different textures, colors and shapes. I love the water stitches, it does remind me of how water flows. Looking forward to seeing what you may work on in the future.
A project with no boundaries, what a wonderful way for the soul to explore. Have fun.

Hugs,
Bobbie Ashley
