Dyeing to Paint members don’t normally meet in August because there is the myth that everyone is away on holiday?
Not true because today eleven eager members turned up ready and eager to create!
Still popular was the ice-dyeing.
Many thnaks to Caroline for replenishing the ice supply at short notice!
A wealth of other resources were also being used, including some lovely stencils that Fiona brought along and shared.
These are Caroline’s pieces of work – always full of vibrant colour – beautiful!
Seedheads were popular. Jan stencilled hers in a subtle shade – they are just waiting for some creative stitch Jan.
Isobelle tried out the seed heads as well and then produced a lovely piece of fabric using the rollergraph.
Isobelle also brought along a mosaic fabric seahorse that she is making and will look stunning when it is finished.
And, Fiona brought along two wonderful wall hangings that she had made using the seed head stencil. Love the holographic threads that were used.
Apologies to Fiona as these photos don’t do her work justice!
Fran was busy using her gelli plates and produced this amazing piece of work
Monica was busy trying, not too successfuly at times, to stencil shells onto a piece of previously dyed fabric. Many thanks to Isobelle, Jan and Hillary for their pearls of wisdom – always a winner!
And Glynis brought two completed pieces of work that will be used for our stand at the Ystradowen Village Hall day on 16 September
Glynis also brought her sister in law with her today and how artistic is she! Look at this beautiful picture she created. We hope you have a lovely day Vivienne and thank you for your company.
As ever, a busy and creative day interspersed with lots of chatter and banter – an ideal recipe for fun.
Congratulations to Pam Stead and Jeannie Duncan Farr who have had their quilts accepted for exhibition at the Festival of Quilts in August – well deserved!
Hilary was also very industrious yesterday. She was covering little note pads with beautifully embroidered fabric. They are being donated to the Tombola stall at the Quilters Exhibition that is being held in the NEC, Birmingham in August.
I am looking forward all the lovely items that have been donated.
