Well, it's 2019.  The last post on this group was July 12, 2016......TOO LONG!  I'm sure we have all learned a new technique (or two) during this time...   OR   ....   we saw one we would like to explore.  I would like to breathe some air into this group.  Lets start by making a NEW LIST of possible techniques we want to learn.  I have added a discussion up top.

I have just made Jake a Shark to lie in while watching TV and Jess of course wants a mermaid one. Made myself a top and Jess a reversible bucket hat. She is funny about clothes and the dresses I made were never worn. Hope your family trouble resolves soon Cindy,

Making clothes for little girls has turned out to be a lot of fun! Who knew? lol

Just when I think my mojo is returning, poof it disappears again. I think I had more time to create before we retired. LOL. Now (as of the last coiple weeks) I am loosing my big sewing area. It wasn't totally put together, but we now have DD and enterourage (sp) living with us. This includes a 3 yr old. The area that would have been my studio is now theirs. Hopefully this is temporary until they can get on their feet. (Long story)  But at least we can provide a safe place for them. So I make do until later. Have been making clothes for a little girl right now. A new technique to try would be fun and a nice change.

I think our mojo's taken a vacation and forgot to take us along! LOL  I'm starting to rearrange/paint/muck out my sewing space. Maybe when that is done my mojo will return from its trip.

Linda, mine's  been missing for quite a while, too! lol

We did something in HS art class using Liquitex and colored tissue paper to "enhance" our paper Mache projects. My memory of the stuff was that it came in matte or gloss and smelled pretty much like white glue. I wonder if that would work as well (or if the stuff still exists! HS was a VERY long time ago! lol) 

Comment by Brenda Crisci on July 12, 2016 at 7:53am

Hi everyone!  Linda...you are correct...we did play with paper fabric and it has been a long time since we tried something new......soooooo...any ideas?  I have recently retired so I should have more "play time"  If anyone has any suggestions...feel free...

My download on the computer is so slow I haven't been able to pull it up yet. Sounds fun though
