While we waited for the kettle to boil I ducked up to the Post Office and sent these golden pretties on their way to Meg in WA for our FRIENDS Swap.
Under the instructions of our tutor Ruth we drew our design, chose our colours and started painting. Leaf by leaf my design grew until .........
it was ready to fill in the background. We had to keep placing pieces of plastic over the painted areas to keep the dye moist.
Waiting ... waiting ... until Thursday when I could wash it out and hey presto!
Next step is lots and lots of quilting with different coloured threads to enhance and embelish .... hmmm .... where do I start?
Thankyou Ruth. It was a very enjoyable workshop!
