There was so much excitement, concentration, chatter
and intense activity in my home recently
when I conducted a workshop in
creating a fabric and lace book
after being approached
by three enthusiastic women all coming from a quilting
There were Vivienne and Virginia
who travelled the furthest - about a 10 hour trip
and then there was Jesse from
Lace Age Girl blog
(please go and visit her beautiful blog and wonderful
photography there. Jesse has been creating with
fabrics, laces and papers now for some time)!
They brought oodles and oodles of fabrics and laces
to work on their projects - this being their first
attempt at creating a "book"
they all took to their new creations
like to ducks to water
I had to prize them away from
creating their pages
for some nourishing tea, coffee and almond cake
but by the time the evening meal was to be served
I think they were ready to take a real break
after which we continued on well into
the evening just to reach the
stage when they felt they had grasped their direction.
They all achieved fantastic results
with their own chosen themes, images and materials
creating pages within their covers including pockets.
Here they are after a well earned sleep
the following morning
posing with their achievements
as well as one very satisfied and proud teacher
sharing in their success!!!
Well done girls - I can't wait to see their finished books.
All's well that ends well and as
everybody knows the more we put in
the more we receive!
Wishing you all a wonderful Mother's Day
wherever you are!
