New post at last
I've also started Module 3 of Playways (an online course run by Dale Rollerson of the Thread Studio) The 2 samples below are part of it.
It's similar to the above piece & other work I've done, so I'll have to make sure I extend myself a bit. I do like to have something to work through and there are a few things that will be a challenge. The samples, when all completed, are a great resource too. I've resolved to be more organised this time by working in the right order & making notes as I go. The last module took me so long that by the time I'd finished I'd forgotten how I did some of them and where I'd put them. Some, I'm sure, were used in other work.
Below: this isn't part of Mod 3, it will be a bag front and is made from scraps of metallic fabrics and some cheese cloth type fabric painted with metallic textile paint. It's all done in free straight stitch with metallic threads. I've got to do some more bags for a gallery, they've sold all the last lot.
On a happier note, we had our daughter Renee with a friend of hers from Austria and young son to stay on Friday as they had to fly out very early Sat. I met her when I was in Austria so it was nice to catch up again and we had a lovely dinner at Roleys on the Ridge. She also made us a beautiful traditional Austrian chocolate cake called Sacher Torte. Yum!
