CLASS








These pieces are from a class I taught a few weeks ago. It is lovely when you look back and see the work that was created. You know you did a good job in the teaching.
There were a lot of techniques in this class. First we painted on visoflex then ironed onto felt. One girl used heat and bond and it gave the piece a lovely shinny finish. Then we stripped silk flowers and arranged on the felt. Covered the piece with net and stippled it. Then the pieces were embellished with beads or motifs. One of the girls used silk that they had painted before hand and she cut her flowers out of this. Another used a piece of silk she had dyed years ago and then proceed to cut and fringe it. It was great to watch what they came up with.

CHRISTMAS IS JUST ABOUT HERE




I had made a couple of things to give to my daughter for Christmas. I have not been doing a lot the last few months. Time has just got away but will post the doll I made in the next few days.


I love the table runner and have made myself one as well and another on the way. A lot of work but worth it.
