A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to score a place in an online classes being conducted by Sharon Boggon. You can see Sharon's work on her blog:- http://www.pintangle.com/
The class is called Sumptuous Surfaces, which has conjured up some exciting images in my head I have to admit. Our first exercise is working in monotone. Of course, without giving too much away, I felt I'd like to share a little with readers. I will be working in grey tones. As you can see from the first photograph, it appears I have a fair selection of grey threads. I also seem to have found quite sufficient in the beading line as well. Perhaps in time my grey sumptuous surface will see the light of day!!
I always like to work towards using these exercises to actually make something. I still have several small ring binders that need covers. I seem to have inherited them, and find them useful for keeping track of project ideas. I found these three grey toned fabrics in my stash, and when the postcard size embroidery is finished, I will decide which fabric suits it the best. I'm actually tipping the blotchy to plain grey will be my choice, with the bubbly one for the lining.
I will hopefully have something presentable to share in a few weeks. Thank you all again for the interest shown in all that I do. Your support is always welcome.
