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..

"I have neither the spoken nor the writtenword,especially if i have to saysomething about myself or my work,Whoever wants to know something about me-as an artist,the only notable thing-ought to lookcarefully at my pictures and try and see in them what i am and what i want to do."
