"Hi Carol Anne. Thank you. I actually took the class on the first go round. I learned a lot from Margaret and highly recommend the class! I definitely benefit from having a teacher critic my work and provide me direction in stitch placement for the…"
"Katherine (and anyone else wishing to learn thread painting), Mary Corbet has just given advanced warning of an on-line thread painting course to be run on her site Needle'n'Thread.
Full details can be found on her post Vintage…"
"Katherine, why not do Trish Burr's on-line course. That will give you the skill and confidence to do more. Tanja Berlin also does a very good on-line course for absolute beginners wanting to learn thread painting techniques."
"my dream is to have enough skill and confidence to do one of Trish Burrs birds. Your robin is lovely and the leaves look real. Your stitching is beautiful. Thank you for sharing your work which inspires to me to keep on learning.."
I have just about run out of bits of paper to stick into scrap books/journals. (Until I open the next box/drawer or cupboard anyway.) It started as a chore, but has been quite enjoyable! It will certainly be more fun looking through all the bits I have saved for inspiarion!
Have just had a look at your journal pages. I enjoyed looking very much as I have been sticking all sorts of paper scraps into books over the last couple of months, to stop them falling out of boxes, shelves, drawers and cupboards, then adding bits and pieces of precious scraps of threads, yarn, and fabric mainly from the floor of the sewing room! I haven't got the patience to work with paints and stuff that needs drying time, but I am having fun without that sort of mess.
Marjorie...thanks for the welcome. I love your photos of the journal. I haven't done anything like this. I guess I should be keeping a journal like you. Thanks for all your encouragement and kindness. You are a lovely person, and I am gald you are my friend.
Hi Marjorie, I really like how you did the mock up for your fiber book. I tend to jump right in and start something... it didn't work this time hence the ugly page LOL... Looks like you can get some of the design issues worked out well this way before you get going.
Well Marjorie, I have to admit that the first and last day of the month wasn't my idea. I run a sister group to my blog on Ravelry and it was a suggest from there. I liked the idea and just kind of promote it.
