Game Board SamplerSAL - I added the red house. Looking forward to seeing progress pictures from Bine, Cathy, Myrna, + Nicole.
Heard from Kay O (does not have a blog) & she has 3 houses done on the "left hand quarter". Melody? Have you worked on your sampler? (also without a blog)
I added tree trunks & garden gates to The Sanctuary. I would like to get tree tops added this week ...
Saturday, (6-May), I attended a workshop sponsored by Needle Artisans of Northwest Indiana, EGA chapter. CiCi Case, of CiCi Case Designs, taught Mail Art Envelope. I had a wonderful time learning how to put together an envelope with linen (and fabric lining). As you notice in the photograph, I'm just starting to stitch the motif on the envelope flap. As I get closer to mailing, I'll put up another photo.
The kit CiCi put together was fantastic. She had the linen, fabric for lining, perle coton, floss, basting thread, snaps, stamps, beads, a charm -- color photograph, background information on mail art, and pattern. The hands-on demonstrations, designing tips, hints, and teaching by CiCi were excellent. I learned so much!! CiCi had a scrapbook with photographs & brought along several mail art envelopes (stitched & gone thru the postal systems). What creative stitchers : )
I've enjoyed seeing photos of mail art on blogs & look forward to completing this kit.
