Fruits and Flower: embroidery on refuse plastic (rice sacks)
Tried out some weaving techniques and basic lace needlework, I might make a collage of some kind with the fabrics and trim seen below

Cherry Wine: embroidery on refuse plastic (mesh from produce bag, hoop cut from a take-away container)
The mesh was tacked to the hoop before wrapping with floss. I sketched the image on paper and then taped the hoop to the paper and embroidered an outline to make sure I could line up the stitches and shape with the intersections of the mesh. Then I filled in details without the paper behind the hoop.

Colour-Mixing Fruit: embroidery on cotton
Lemon, mandarin, apple, grape, plum, and lime; a salad of colour. I might use the cotton piece to make a pocket for a garment at some point.
