Work in Progress Wednesday


At our guild meeting last week we shared our 'sinchie' challenges.  The theme was nature.  These six-inch square challenges can be fairly quick to create which is a good thing.  I had started one with a leaf as the focal point and wasn't thrilled with the way it was going.  So I created the one in the top photo which is a more abstract interpretation of the theme. 
Our meeting was held at The Idea Exchange in Cambridge.  What a fabulous place!  They have a 3D printer, laser cutter, and a few other machines that you can book time to use.  We were shown how the 3D printer works and given a printed button to use.  Also, we were shown how the laser cutter works and given the snowflake ornament.  The guild member that organized the trip has challenged us to use these two things in a fibre piece.  That should be fun!

You certainly have lots of challenges to be creative with!

These new inventions cost a lot but if shared like the ones at your workshop, you can add a totally new dimension to your creations. The button and snowflake look so perfect, and they will be beautiful in your hands. Love the foundation, too. You are so clever.
