Oh my gosh, we had so much fun yesterday. Lucy brought a gorgeous purse she made for Show and Tell:
It was made of upholstery fabric with additional machine embroidery embellishments and ultra suede handles. The lining was just as good looking as the bag itself:
I unsnapped the left edge so you could see how it expands if you want to really fill it up, but I like the sides snapped. It gives a nice profile to the bag.
Karen had a beautiful piece, but no photos yet. She and Lucy will be teaching the project at the October bead meeting, and I don’t want to ruin the surprise for everyone. Hopefully, I’ll be attending that meeting too, and will have lots of photos to share then.
Jan – thank-you so much, Jan – demoed how to paint on copper and we made a necklace and earrings. I very carefully wrote down the colors everyone used, and then forget to tag the photos, so I have no clue which picture belongs to which person. I do have lots of pictures of beautiful pieces of painted copper though:
I totally forgot to take a picture of my pieces. Heck, I’m lucky I took any pictures at all. I put the camera on a table behind me, then was having so much fun, I almost forgot to take any pictures at all.
While we made jewelry yesterday, I plan on using this technique on copper pieces that will be used on my art quilts.
