Textiles and Tennis

At our Wednesday Night Ladies Tennis we were presented with the photo taken after last season’s grand final. Kim may not appreciate me putting this photo in here, not one of her best!!!! (I’m the one on the left). Our night tennis is as much social as physical exertion so this photo was taken after a couple of celebratory wines!

On Thursday we had our monthly Textile group fun day. We are trying to find a name for our group. A couple of suggestions were Creative Cats (after the mighty Geelong Cats AFL football champions of course) and Creative T*Arts. T stands for Textile. I like them both but we’re open to further suggestions.
Pam brought along a box of wooden printing blocks, average size 12 inches!!! We did some paper casting with water soluble paper, rubbings onto various fabrics using paintstiks and the ordinary transfer crayons and some stamping with xpandaprint. Pauline brought along a big packet of paper clay so we brought out the baking utensils: pastry sheets and rolling pins, and played around with that. I embedded a little muslin in mine and sprayed some moonshadow mist. I thought afterwards I probably should have waited until it was dry to colour it but it seems fine.

I managed a little hand stitching on my Orange bellied parrots, then found I didn’t have the right colour for the beak and eye (I want a purpley black/brown, preferably silk) I’ll pop down to the local fabric shop this morning to see what they have. Hopefully I’ll have a postcard ready to send off to Susan Lenz soon.

Till next week
