Linda Drake (UK) Joanne Bowes (UK) Tessa Ellis (UK) Sheilagh Dyson (UK) Sue Hotchkis (France) Ita Dunhe (Ireland)

6 Shuffles to share with you today. Once again they're all very different! Thank you so much for your generous donations to Save The Children.

Linda Drake has sent us this piece - a felted and stitched landscape. Lots of movement in this one!

Joanne Bowes's work is on cloth with lots of hand stitching.


Tessa Ellis has a printed cloth background (or maybe printed paper with a fine textile overlay?) The piece has machine and hand embroidery and the word "beauty is only sking deep) appliqued on top.


Sheilagh Dyson's piece is also mixed media. It's baground layers are raw edged and hand sewn into play with heavy stitching. There are 2 button at the top highlighting the words "...one of those grey days..." The figure on white cloth has a single tear on her cheek.


Sue Hotchkis is well known to us here at TOH HQ! You can read about her work in one of our free magazines - just nip over to throughourhands.co.uk and click the links. Her striking piece mounted onto the white piece is arresting. It's heavily machined stitched which gives amazing texture and is in a beautiful palette of autumnal colours.


Finally from Ita we have a portrait inspired by an Italian fresco.She has called her piece "Mother and Child".
