..Mixed Media Quilting..

….what happens when you put a mixed media artist who likes to paint and create designs on just about any surface she can get her hands on….with a sewing and quilting artist who can create and free motion on fabric like the thread was attached to her finger tips???

..You get a Mixed Media Quilting Workshop..a double act of Lucie and Sandra..showing you how to use paints and threads to create your own fabric panels..
..we have designed a quirky chicken project just for this workshop..
.learn how to use paints,stamps,everyday items to create your backgrounds and doodles
..then after a break for lunch (and some yummy cakes and chocolate!!)
.. its onto the wonderful world of thread play….applying applique and free motion stitching and using threads like paints to detail your project.

Dates and details for this workshop can be found here

…words to inspire

….words are a wonderful way to inspire..i keep a little notebook handy to collect the words that inspire me or that really make me think.. i also collect them on my computer, i organize them into categories so they are easy to find when i am creating

The first Blog to SHARE with you is…

I can’t shout loud enough about this blog..it has to be one of the most useful resources i have seen and completely free to download

I use the downloads a lot for journaling and inspiration..
