New Yahoo Group

I have just joined a new Yahoo Group, called TriciasTextileChallenge. The First Challenge is to do a Symbol size 6x4. I have done an Egyptian Symbol The Eye Of Horus. meaning Healing and protection. I laid somegmmy fibres down first onto cotton fabric, then added wool rovings into the shapes i wanted, Sprayed and ironed, then added a piece of organza on top needled felted carefully. then stitched around the shapes. just need to add a backing of pelmet vilene, which of course i am all out of.. You can find out all about Tricai on

That's lovely Genie. That symbol is also one of my favourites and you have chosen some beautiful colours to make it in.

I really like your Eye of Horus Jean. Years ago I had a painting of the Eye of Horus above my bed.
