Wired Beadwork

Attended a brilliant workshop yesterday, the tutor was Germaine Fisher who originally comes from Australia. For a change I took 2 completed bracelets home with me, instead of a half finished item. Germaine is a very talented lady and was eager to share her experience and knowledge with us.

I'll have to find some more doillies to complete her dress. Think I'll look for some fabric to make her a hat.

Dressmakers Dummy

Well, I nicely assembled the doll, thought she needed a little more stuffing, tried to give her a bit more padding, and split her sides. I tried to mend but decided it was easier to start again. I'm quite pleased with her, hopefully I will dress her in vintage doillies. I need a name instead of just calling her her. Any suggestions?

Dressmakers Dummy

Been busy the last couple of days trying to complete my fabric postcards I am doing for a swap with a group called Art4Mail. This is a great group with many talented ladies, all willing to share their knowledge. I now get beautiful fabric postcards from all over the world. Its GREAT.

I would like to thank those who have taken time and visited my blog, not very good as yet as I am just beginner and learning. Hope you will keep on popping in and leaving your comments.

I have just started another project. If it turns out alright, it will go into an exhibition by Stitch-in-9 textiles Artists which I am a member at Peoples Theatre in Newcastle. The title of the exhibition is"Dressing Up"
The project is making a dressmakers dummy, pattern by Jill Maas. I have managed to make the stand with a little help from hubby. The body and head are partial completed, hopefully I will have tme to put them together tonight.

This is a lovely fabric postcard that I received today from a friend in U.S.A. The theme of the swap was pink and brown. I'll have to go and play on the sewing machine instead of the computer.

Friday 14th August.
Was going to do gardening this afternoon, but rain put a stop to this.
Instead, it gave me the opportunity to make some fabric postcards that I'm douing for a swap.
