What a day this has been............................

a day with Purple Missus.  Early this morning I had a look at Lynda's blog and voted on the quilts she had there, a few hours later I was touching the real things. Magic.
If you follow Lynda's blog you can imagine what a wonderful day we have had.  We have played with scrim, Lutradur, pelmet vilene, Xpandaprint, gesso, paint, heat guns, soldering irons, machine stitching and good old fashioned hand stitiching. There was not one piece of work which was like another, each piece was an example of its makers creativity.
 This is a piece I did with Lutradur, Xpandaprint, ink and salt and a little touch of paint

and this was the piece of kitchen roll I had underneath it.
Same paint, same salt, different fabric.

I meant to re-do this but became so busy I forgot.  Lynda in full flow.
and these were some of the beautiful example she brought with her.


Can't wait for tomorrow when I can continue the story when I do the next stages on my own "vessel". If you ever have the chance to do a workshop with her, grab it she will get your creative juices. 


 Wait for a twenty minutes for a bus and then two come along at once!
I have been stagnating for ages.  Two days ago I was  lucky enough to secure a place on the  course with Jude of Spirit Cloth, I am so excited and, now today,  something at the other end of the textile spectrum a workshop which has awakened all my love of texture and rust and mixed media. 

What a great couple of  days these  have been..............

So glad you had such a great day, it's wonderful when you get a tutor that really inspires you and is so generous with their knowledge as Lynda is.

Hoping to get a place on her workshop with our Embroiderers Guild in September. Her talk is fantastic too!
