This will not be a swap with partners this time as the theme is a personal one to you and probably be a keepsake that you wish to treasure.
" A Personal Childhood Memory."
Not many rules.
You have from now until July 1st to get your piece finished.
The piece will have with it a short paragraph of what the piece means to you, no names as the one judging will only know by a letter I assign. It must have THREAD PAINTING on, but it can also have mixed media and be no larger than 12 x 12
If you have any questions please ask away.
I will put people names up when they let me know if they are interested.
I know some already have but hopefully they won't change their minds when they read this.
Please let me know if I have missed someone as I don't have the screen up of TP and I am sure there was others. I will go back in and add.
Yes, I was E. Not very "fancy" but more the memory part for me...I enjoyed making this piece and will cherish it always...
Sorry Brenda! The internet kept dropping out earlier, so I started posting comments and then couldn't get back on to read the main page, I just came here to see if you'd seen the results. It seems the internet is working now - I couldn't get foxtel working either (I think they are magically connected somehow) so I had to resort to watching a DVD while I worked. The problem with that was the DVD 'door' wouldn't open by pressing the remote or the button on the unit - (haven't used it for a long time) I was getting VERY frustrated!! Of course if you 'encourage' it with a fingernail whilst pressing the button like a crazy woman - sometime it just works! Huh! Who needs technology?? :)
Sometimes you need to replace the batteries on the remote. : )
I hear you on the faffing, Sister! (but not the part about the nice, tidy work room!)
Have a great trip Ally and Paul. Enjoy the family. 11C??? That's what we've got here and it's WINTER!!!
But then, it was cold when you were here hoping for some summery weather.
Don't know why I have no notifications for here until this morning. Well done BJ and Brenda. I would like to thank Ally and BB for giving me the chance to DO SOMETHING. It was really small and not very well executed but I enjoyed doing it.
Have a good trip Ally and I can just add that I have only wore sandals once this year. We are not quite as far up the country as you are going but we have had no summer to speak of yet.
Congratulations Brenda and BJ on being the winners. Can't wait to see what all everyone did.
