I had a full class of eight students, six of which were from a group called 'Wandering Threads'.
This is Heather. I had already met Heather before at Plas Tan y Bwlch in Wales last year.
This is another member of the same group, Jill - goodness knows what she was doing down there!
Jan, on the right of the photo is the sixth member of the group. We also had Jane, in the centre and Bernadine who I didn't manage to get a photo of.
At least I remembered to take photos!
Its ALQS time again - number 8. Details are all here. The deadline is this Monday, 3rd February.
There are 45 names in the pool and so far 23 quilts have been posted. I already have several favourites from the ones that are pictured.
This is my entry for this round. A lot of people have already guessed that.
It hasn't been especially made for this round - that is allowed. Some of you reading this blog will have seen it before. All I have to do is put a back on it.
It is called 'Life's too short too dance with ugly men' - which is what the latin script translates to - and is 45cm square. The background is Cotton Duck machine stitched on to blanket. The Celtic motif is Pumice Gel stencilled on to Kunin Felt. Randomly stitched on to Pelmet Vilene then zapped before stitching to background. The wording has been printed on to dressmaking tissue paper using a laser printer and adhered to the background with Golden Polymer Medium just prior to adding colour. The whole piece has been given a layer of gesso before being coloured with Golden Fluid Acrylic paints in Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold, Transparent Red Iron Oxide and Paynes Grey.
And that's it for this week. 5 weeks, 5 blogs. I'm managing to keep it up at the moment. :)
