a little more Textile Art Festival
Thanks for all the comments and the many emails I have had about the Textile Art Festival. I agree with you on the embellisher judging Teresa - sort of lowest common denominator stuff and I thought so last year when somebody, I know not who, was rubbished in public and I felt so embarrassed for her. Useless with photos we were but Robin took this one of me working - I was using de Colourant and de Colourant Plus on my piece of hand dyed fabric which Lisa from Dyed and gone to Heaven gave me to play with. I stamped truffa on it as you do and I was drying it with my heat gun and talking at the same time so there are some burnt patches but that is no big deal. For those who loved my alphabet sponge stamps, I have managed to find more sets which I can happily sell when I get them. Before too long I shall stitch all over it and then decide what to do next. When we got home I thought truffa had disappeared from the wall but it is still there. I also did quite a bit of stamping paint on Romeo which needs further work. You can see we always had a mess of stuff around us, Jacinta and I. Not sure who was the messiest.
We are pretty well up to date and enjoying tonight's rugby but tomorrow I have 2 deadlines to meet so will be working hard in the morning to get them both finished. Then a few more rugby games to watch.
