During the Christchurch symposium the merchant's mall provided inspiration with some amazing ways of coloring fabrics.
My Gelatos (a Faber Castell product) were purchased from Kerry of Tulis Textiles. These little beauties have proven to be incredible and WAY too fun!
After playing and trying all sorts of crazy manipulations, a new class is being born. I'm thinking about naming the class 'Weak at the Knees' because the potential in these easy-to-apply colors is breathtaking. Several patterns to go along with the class have been designed and can't wait to lure some unsuspecting friends to 'try' these new and VERY satisfying creations.
The other class has come about to solve the age-old question of what to do with leftover batting - (once the table runner, placemat, coaster ideas have lost their charm) It's all well and good to use the fluffy stuff in soft furnishing or plush toys, but my new playtime has found a way to put them to a more interesting use! This textural technique is addicting, and I'm finding myself stealing a few minutes here and there to add a few stitches.
Happy holidays everyone! Enjoy ringing out the old year with new inspirations.
