I had a very busy and creative week last week and this week is going the same way. Above is a painting I made at the SerenTex meeting a week on Tuesday after watching Miriam demonstrate an exercise from the book Celebrate Your Creative Self: More Than 25 Exercises to Unleash the Artist within, Mary Todd Beam. I am pleased with it as I can see it in fabric with all the folds and pleats. It should be fun trying to create a textile piece from the inspiration. I shall post the rest of the work on SerenTex when I have some time to spare. It was great meeting.
The North Wales Branch Embroiderers' Guild is a very active group and once a month we have a Members Day, which I call a Playday. Last Thursday Moya our Chairman demonstrated some Flower brooches she’d seen, using organza, an embellisher and a heat gun. Then we all had a great time creating our own, but unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me, so you will have to make do with the one I made (above)
I wrote one of my longest posts in a long while, which took me about an hour only to lose it all when trying to save it as Blogger was having a Scheduled Outage at 8 pm and I hadn’t noticed and it only lasted for 10 minutes, but that must have been when I decided to save. Drat, I lost it all. This post is shorter and I will post the rest tomorrow instead.
