Much Arty Fun

This post will be a catch up on how much fun I have been having over this month with making my faces quiltie for the ATASDA Travelling Suitcase Exhibition, Sketchbook Revival- a free crazy full on arts extravaganza, making my Challenge piece for Stitching & Beyond (Tasmania) travelling exhibition, making a postcard to post off to the Solihull embroiderer’s Group for a swap, attending a wonderful workshop-After Mirka Mora with Deb Brearley and another workshop with Carolyn Hawkins at the Bluebird Foundation.

Basket making with Carolyn, a drawing and watercolour from the session with Carla Sonheim and postcard in process:

After Mirka Mora:

And the two travelling pieces in process: some hand stitching needed on the Faces piece to knock back the colour before I back and bind it to send off this week and the base level for Ancient Strata .

Catching up 1

I plan to do a series of posts over the next couple of weeks to catch up on all the items I intended to blog about and haven’t as yet. Firstly, Claudia and I had a lovely ATC swap with our regular swap partner, Anne from France. Anne does the most beautiful miniature stitcheries I have ever seen and Claudia is always so excited to see the envelope arrive all the way from France.

Claudia and I have also been practicing our sketching and watercolouring via Jane Le Fazio’s online class.

First attempt!!








Getting better??

And then we moved onto leaves:








Just before I go and alter two dresses for daughter number 1’s 21st this coming weekend, here are Claudia and I getting some tips from Roger at the Australian Open Tennis!!
