Sarah - glad you're home safely and not bearing a grudge about the excessive stairs. No spider crunching cats or incontinent kitties today - we will get back on topic - but I do hope that you find a home for the kits, Artibliss.
I am a bit shattered after the two intensive days but at least it resolved my insomnia. Slept like a log last night. I have some photos of the work from the course - not brilliant pics as the light was poor. Everyone produced exceptional work, which is amazing considering we only had two days and we sampled lots of techniques. We had a relaxing start yesterday morning when the brief was a landscape study using natural wools with just a little silk and nylon for accents. I like Annette's Floating Landscape.
The wools were from all makes of sheep - we loved the wool from the seaweed eating flock in Ronaldsay. (Think that's correct, doubtless someone will know.) Here is Jane's landscape. Lovely delicate tree.
Kay made a fabulous bag. We were layering up embellished surfaces, putting organza on top and then stitching. Cutting between the stitching and embellishing again gave us all good results. This technique forms the borders of this bag.
Yvonne's zapped lace piece was so delicate. This pic doesn't do it justice.
You can see what a great class they were. We also had a lot of laughs - and broke a few needles. I'll show you some more tomorrow. Right now, I need coffee - lots of coffee.
