Ruby Red & Another Horizon Exhibition

I was part of the Ruby Red Exhibition at Wantage Museum put on by Oxford Embroiderers Guild. The exhibition celebrated 40 years of the Guild. I had only just become a member so was very much a newbie of just a few months. The Guild also exhibited work based on the theme "Another Horizon".  

Both of my contributions were needle felting pieces and the Ruby Red is very red indeed!
