getting creative

These are a few of the projects I have completed lately. The bag I hand embroidered with varigated DMC thread then quilted the bag. It received a first in our local show. The cats where a photo of an embroidery on a denim jacket that I saw on the net. I decided to paint them instead. The centre picture is a result of a work shop that I attended on the weekend. It is pen and wash. I am addicted. The picture isnt very clear but I am really pleased with my efforts. I went to the craft council at 10 in the morning and didnt leave until 4.30pm. The day before the same tutor (Pam) did silk painting as a workshop. I will post pictures once it is steamed. And my big news is.......drum roll..........I got champion exhibit in needlework for my whole cloth, hand quilted quilt at this years show. Yeah for me. lol
