club challenge was grapes on the vine, this one fits into a shadow box
Yesterday in Peachland there was a miniature show and sale that my club and I always support. Not a very big show as far as dealers but the Kelowna club and Kamloops club too always have beautiful displays. Unfortunate that my camera did not work well with the lighting there so can only show off my display items . I did have fun with all of the mini friends that I was able to see again too . Always fun to be with people who have the same hobby isn't it? I managed to spend my allowance and more on some new toys and will maybe try to get a photo or two of them one day soon.
I was so fortunate to take a class with Fiona Duthie last week. It was a one day class out of the five days she was teaching here in town. What fun it was and what hard work too ; ) . I learned a lot about wet felting and proud of the purse I made . A couple of my friends did the class with me so that was great and it was also nice to meet some new people who have the same love of wool and felting. If Fiona ever comes back I will take another class with her in a heart beat. Google her name to see what a talented artist she is.
this is supposed to be GREEN needle felted 4 inch square quiltie do not know why it looks grey
Happy Easter or Passover
What a beautiful weekend it is here. Very warm and sunny . We have had the best winter and now spring that I ever remember.
The first photo is my march quiltie for the swap I am playing in lately. It is very late leaving my house but I am liking it so hope my swap partner does too. I had trouble getting a good photo so hope that she will take a better one when she gets it in the mail.
Last month I went to a nuno felting class at our local quilt shop, we made scarves out of cheese cloth and wool and it was very interesting and fun. messy but so worth it in the end. Mine is the green one in the second photo.
I am taking another felting class this week and so excited about that. I will post photos of that class project when I am finished. It is a purse with lots of new techniques .
decoupage, collage, cards, stamping, dollhouse miniatures, felting and embroidery are all ways that I try to create my art! Sometimes they overlap, sometimes they don't but I keep playing and enjoying every minute of it too.
