Painting Day Part 2

We had a choice of beautiful stitcheries to destroy with our amateurish attempts at painting! The one above is mine.
However, our fears were groundless, because EVERYONE produced a masterpiece! Libby is such a good teacher - she explains everything so clearly.
The girls were quite nervous about putting paintbrush to calico, but once started they took to it like ducks to water.
We even had "foreman material" - Orion took great interest in the proceedings, while his Mum, Sam, watched intently, and put paintbrush to fabric.

I wondered out loud who was going to be the first to dip their paintbrush in their coffee!

This was the "naughty table".

Every now and then there was a shriek of dismay - a mistake or a paint run - but Libby quite calmly "fixed" our little disasters with the minimum of fuss. A little dab here, and a little blot there ..... simple really!

Above is Denise's work, and below is a very happy Denise with her completed painting. Now all she has to do is the stitching .......
The workbelow is mine, with some of the embroidery started.
What a lovely day we had. I hope Marilyn plans another soon! If she does, I'll let you know, Sandi!
