Well, it's just after 5 am (Thurs) here and that means it's about lunchtime (Wed) there. I have been popping in and looking at the quilts coming up during my breaks. They are all so wonderful and so different.
Unfortunately, since it is the middle of the night, I haven't got a wonderful photo, only one taken with my camera. as DH's big camera wouldn't work for me and he is fast asleep.
The sky is felted on satin, the ocean is fused sheers with some stitching, The rocks are fused sheers using my soldering iron - no cutting there and the rock pool is organza, burned with a heat gun to make it puckery, then beaded.
The children are mostly needleturn applique and have needlepunched silk hair
The doll is polymer clay and the boat is some twigs and a bit of bark. I made these into a little brooch that clips on.
There is also a fair bit of threadpainting.
Even though I had a lot of problems with this piece and some of it is not how I imagined it, I am pleased with the overall picture. I had to re applique the little girl's face three times before I felt it was good enough to go on with and there are lots of mistakes - so does that mean I learnt a lot?
I am so glad to be a part of this group and can't wait for the next challenge!
I am so excited by how everyone's work has come out - Cheers, everyone.
