Brightening up the day

Another grey dull day! And it’s not just my imagination – we have made 25 fewer solar hours from our solar panels in 2013, compared with this time last year.
But there are some bright moments. Today I bought a wonderful turquoise silk dupion to back a stained glass effect piece I made in a work shop this week. We layered coloured chiffon, free machine stitched them together, then snipped back some shapes to reveal colours, finally cutting out areas with a soldering iron.
Fun to make, but the idea was to turn it into a sun catcher, which is a bit of an irony! So I decided instead to appliqué it on to a clear blue background fabric, in the hope that we might see a sky this colour soon.
