Last December I held my 2nd “in house” workshop. We all had a great time. We worked with all kinds of silk fibers and created dolls that were hand dyed, dressed in silks and embellished with beads. She’s also a workshop I’ll be teaching throughout 2007.
Another project I love are Tomes. A Tome is a journal, a work in progress. My Stargaze Stitchery Tome has been a huge success as a pattern series. I’ve taught other pages and will be adding them to my Stitchery Tome.
Each page has a different technique. The Hawaiian hula dancer uses paints, Tyvek and beadwork. The Japanese women includes painting and free maching stitching.
Quilting Arts magazine had a project for Coffee Cuffs in a recent issue. I had to try it out and used a couple of my rubber stamps and fabric collage. These are fun and easy and make great gifts.
