I'm a stitcher from way back, taught by my Mum, Grandma and Aunt. Now I'm desperately working hard to realise my dream of building a workroom - to create in, of course! But it's also for all my creative bits and pieces which have taken over the house! Need some space for when the grandchildren come to play!

Made for my Grandson, Josh. I also made one for Archie - "Archie's Animals".
The "girlie" version of "Josh's Jungle"

A quilt for my Mum.......
Monday, July 13, 2015
Ernie Dingle had a fabulous weekend at Sue's Opalescence workshop.
Fabric painting, lace painting, vliesofix painting (yes, vliesofix - it's amazing the effects that can be obtained of you peeloff the painted glue side and iron it on your fabric....), gauze painting, Tyvek play ..... the list goes on!
We played with stencils and stamps.
X-rays were put to great use with Sue's magic cutting machine - it was a bit off-putting to see someone's skeleton on the stencil!
Ernie tried his hand at sewing - poor little bear - he had trouble reaching the foot pedal!
More shots of our experimenting.......
This one will have a mirror placed in the hole eventually.
Now to do more "playing" and maybe a work of art will emerge!
P.S. Off to the quilt and Craft show in a couple of weeks to see if I can "find" anything to add to the quilt!
