A group of internet artists from all over the place who have decided to give each other a challenge every few weeks, on a theme chosen by each in turn. We have different ideas and styles, but share a love of textiles, and want to have some fun.

I like the colours Elma, especially love that warm orange when it goes into yellow and green. So much beautiful stitching too!
