I should have looked at yesterday's blog to see what I was up to in these postings of the designs..
The centre one is not with these & I am not going to find them for days ...longer even ohhh.
It is just I have 2 big batches of buttons to paint ....
But as a suggestion ...if you want a centre piece you could join 3 together....in "frames"
I am sure they will all get along !
I was posting up into Pinterest yesterday & got totally above myself..
My mother would say this a lot when I was a teenager
"don't get above yourself young lady "
I'd be driven by this to think under my breath
"you just watch me" as I'd mutter "No Mum "
It has taken many journeys to rise above that mantra...LOL
I decided to do a new board on my pinterest page...
I use it for a different thing .......
I don't cruise the site unless it is for neat & tidy pantries & the likes...
I use my boards as a history of my work....
I am the full sum of it
sometimes I am amazed at that stroll I have taken......
And yesterday I thought it was a wonderful place
to display & describe easily the workshop I do
with a strong self creativity slant,
some things to paint on,
a little collection of my painted buttons...
I am doing a WORKSHOP
on 9th July & maybe also the 10th July 2016
I have been there several years ago now for one of these weekends
& if some of you recall
we painted a santa face on calico on the side verandah of the venue...
it was a warm day as I recall.
This is a different spread as in we need a space each ...
we just play after I show you some little simple techniques & I observe mostly...
with guidance but not interference or strict structure
because as I watch each person being creative in their own way
& then I see there faces as they leave...
smiles & a pleasure I know well of having achieved something I never thought I could or would.
It is dealing with paint,
so don't think my workshop will be a stitching fest....it is not... but we may manage a thread & needle occasionally....
In my workshops I wanted to bring back the Gatherings of Hearts & Hands that Country Friends & I first ran in Canberra over 16 years ago...
these were open,
no pressure ..
& shy people became friends with who they sat beside ....
that everyone had the fun days or day ..
where they all painted for the first time... those brooches !
My 2 friends Sue & Sue were absolutely flat out all day....gorgeous friends they are !!
So we will have time to lay back a bit, you can keep quite in our own world....stand up, stroll about..
well you need to to find the stamps ...
Have a look on my pinterest pages
a time to dream a little .....
