I have started doing classes on Sundays – and with working and doing courses at the Viking Loom on Saturdays, this means my weekends are now harder work than my week! Have survived and had a good day today doing trees.
I quite like trees, you might have noticed. Todays venture was titled “I Want to be a Tree”. They are a fabulous vehicle for teaching this form of freehand sewing. Lots of potential for experimentation with technique, style, texture and colour. I totally enjoyed myself. I have polished off the afternoon watching the men’s final tennis from Paris, and writing the blog, slowly, is the next way of avoiding going out to mow the lawn.
With a wall full of tree-ness we spent the day sketching from sources, refining approaches and exploring processes.
This one is just short of being finished – a bit more working into the foliage and the trunk filled in and it should be done.
And as for this one…
June and July I have set aside and making and doing time. Lots of getting out and thinking so approaches and expectations.
But first must mow the lawn……
