A little bit more

This is rapidly becoming Claudia’s blog, she definitely has more to show this week. After Junior Embroidery Group on Friday she has spent all weekend stitching on her sampler, see below:

The project worked on at the session was a lining for this basket of which she is very proud. The fairies in the left over fabric are destined for a new series of ATC’s.

Claudia also managed to finish a couple more ATC’s. She was keen to use some of her stitches from her sampler, but we didn’t use the more complicated ones as she didn’t have the threads to count.

Apart from helping Claudia all weekend, I have actually managed some FME on the ‘fireworks’ journal cover. The words are xpandaprint and embossing powder and I will add beading tomorrow at the Embroidery Guild Sit and Sew.

This is the front and back, the flaps will be just the painted fabric and the lining is an offcut of gold satin.
I have finished attending my uni sessions for this semester and just have to complete two assessment pieces. However as it is a three hour round trip for me to go and hand these in at uni I’m looking at other alternatives. I need to have this Researching Arts journal ready to hand in at uni on Friday as Number one daughter and I are heading to Melbourne for some retail therapy (she has finished her midyear VCE exams) so I can get this journal there if it’s finished. I have written a poem for the title page which I’m hoping to print onto acetate sheet and place over a picture of fireworks, however the sheets I saw were only for laser printer or photocopier. Is it possible to print these on normal bubblejet printers anyone????
Cheers all.

    Hi Jo-Anne
    I’ve just picked my jaw up off the floor after looking at Claudia’s wonderful work, What patience she must have and a true love of all things textile.
    Beautiful work, Claudia, well done 🙂
    Your fireworks look brilliant, looking forward to seeing the finished journal.
    I print on photocopy acetate all the time and it’s fine on my Epson R200 printer.
    Thanks for your comments on my blog post, you’re right about the copyright on the pics, my OH does do that on his own web site but I was a bit quick off the mark with these, and no he didn’t know I was taking the pic, sneaky eh!!

    I use acetate sheets and the pack says suitable for lazer and inkjet printers.
    I have done a lot of work using them – no problems. Just make sure you use the correct side.
    There are examples on my recent blogs – a bag and a mobile.
