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.
Wonderful memories everyone and such fantastic methods of illustrating them. You have all done an amazing job. No TP from me for ages and ages. The threads, fabric and sewing machine are still stored in the shed from before we had the house interior painted earlier mid year. Maybe after Christmas at this stage.
A great challenge result Ally - you did a great job of hosting it.
There are some great memory pieces. Well done fellow TP ers and thanks agian Ally for giving me a break from QFC.
THE ORIGINAL PIC i was going to do was of the pit heap in our village. Situated outside of our front door it was a magnet for a tomboy like me. There is a photograph with me sitting in front of it and one day I will get around to it. Didnt do it because I wasn,t sure if anyone else would know what it was.
Congratulations BJ, what a beautiful job you did on the TP. All you ladies are to be commended on putting memories into art. (((Applause! Applause!))) Great job everyone.
I found someone to show me how to thread paint, I have my childhood memory half done, so as soon it is completed I'm bringing it to the shop to learn!!
That's great Sharon! Can't wait to see what your piece.
I put mine in a picture frame, Ally.
