Embellisher

Before I went on holidays one of my friends at the Embroiderers Guild brought her Janome Embellisher along to one of our group meetings for us to see and have a little play.
Yippee do- did I have some fun( as well as breaking one of the needles) I produced this sample.
I started with a piece of green felt and then added some dyed scrim pieces and a few bits of dyed mulberry bark and some fibres.
I may have over felted it a bit but I rather like it anyway.

I am not sure what I will do with it --either make 2 postcards and 2 ATC's or maybe 2 needlecases --I will wait and see what eventuates after a few days of pondering-- and now I have to figure out how to convince my husband how I can fit one more thing in my sewing room.

Great first attempt Doreen. Lovely colours. You really must convince your hubby that you NEED one. They're great fun.

Oh, this is beautiful Doreen! What gorgeous colors.
Am sure you will make something very special from it.

I think the Janome Embellisher is something you NEED :)

I love the colors! If you figure out the way to convince your husband please share with all of us! We can use the method for all kinds of art supplies that we simply must have!

Oh Doreen
Tell your husband that he can have FUN with the Xpression too!
I love mine(Xpression,that is.......Dh is lovable too)

Since using the Xpression I find I'm veering to brighter colours.
