I have had a few commissions and I have been sewing. I have made the front of a quilt, half a bag and half a tea cosy!!!!
Today Caroline and I went to Crafts U Love and met (AT LONG BLEEDIN' LAST!) the wonderful Kim Piggott Had a fantastic day learning to paint with the distress inks. Here are my efforts:
This first one is using brushed courdory and black soot; the face is antique linen and tattered rose; the dress is weathered wood; the petticoat is victorian velvet as are the socks; the shoes are very very pale black soot.
This one is same colours for hair and face; victorian velvet for dress and very pale victorian velvet for socks and shoes.
This one is same for hair and face with barn door for the dress etc. Went a bit over the top with the shoes tho'. Practice, practice, practice..........
I have to day I am just sooooo chuffed with meself and would like to thank Kim very very much for her patience and guidance. Can't wait to meet her again.
I went to the Artsycraft weekend 8/9 May and made some fabulous stuff - can't show it tho until tomorrow as there is another one this weekend. Watch this space - hopefully for not as long as the last time I posted.
Great to be back!
OH BY THE WAY - HIYA TRACY!!!! THANKS FOR ALL THE TEA.............
See you tomorrow.
