Needlepunch, embellishing machine

I am taking an on-line course with Dionne Swift.  She is an artist from the UK and her work is spectacular.  And the course is brilliant....such a lot of fun.  I would heartily recommend that you check out her website and maybe even consider taking a course with her!
This is a piece that I did this morning.  I am using the scrims and threads that I dyed the other week.  It's so nice to have a stash on hand.  I am dyeing more fabrics today.  So much to learn...this really is too much fun!
OK, I've got to go and add the soda ash!  I'll be back...

I am adding Dionne's link below...check out her on-line workshops.


  1. Lovely image Marny. Which of Dionne's courses are you taking? I could not tell from reading the descriptions her website. Fun that you used the embellisher.

  2. Hi Laura. I'm actually doing all of them, one after another. The first one is Drawing for Textiles. Just excellent!

    You are a star!
    Thank you so much for being a super student!
