Indian Adventure (1) - Tri-Fold Book Workshop Sample - Finished!!

At last the sample book is finished!!

After many hours of stitching and embellishing...

...followed by glueing and painting...

..."Indian Adventure (1)" is done...

...ready for it's first outing with Lingen Stitchers next Monday. :-)

(This would normally be at least a 2-day workshop, but I'm sure I can get them far enough down the creative path that they can finish off at home afterwards! :-)

I've used hand-dyed calico...

...printed with my very favourite Colouricious wooden print blocks...

...and, as you can see...

...the results are just lovely!

(Well I think so anyway!)






Finished off with some of my hand-made "Lava Beads".




I'm running this workshop over a weekend "Chez Moi" in July.

That one is already full...but I will run another one at some time, along with another Medieval Tile one... so let me know if you are interested.

A Wonderful Weekend Workshop!!

Five women are completely worn out...

...after an intense, but very enjoyable weekend workshop "Chez Moi"...

...making a Medieval Tile-inspired trifold book!

Everyone threw themselves into the task at hand...

...and produced the most gorgeous pages. :-)

Well done Jules, Katherine, Anne and Pauline...

...it was a pleasure to have your company...

...and I'm looking forward to our next meeting (in June)...

...and workshop (in July).

As always...

...Brusho Sprays and paints from Colourcraft...

...calico and Egyptian cotton fabrics from Empress Mills...

....and superb wooden print blocks - Medieval tile designs - from Colouricious!

Wednesday's doodles...

...progressed into something a little more...

...elaborate...

...and useful!



Two lovely little "tangles"...

...that have come together in a medieval diapering pattern in glorious rich colours.


Why useful?

It is a sample that will become a page in another "Medieval" themed tri-fold book! :-)


Now it's time to do some stitching...

... I'm getting a bit behind!! :-o

Tuesday's doodles...

...are a bit different!

Piles and piles of little tiles were punched...

...for my doodly-tangly thingys...

...but I didn't want them just sitting in a pile on my desk.

So...

...I made use of this tiny little box...





...did some doodly things on it...

...and now I have somewhere to keep my tiles...

...that is both practical and pretty!! :-)




I'm a happy lady!
