Well, I'm sorry it has been so quiet around here for the last couple of weeks, but I've had a lot on and this blog of mine somehow got pushed aside in all the action.
The week before last was my last week of the semester at university, so I had lots of assignments and exams to do. I haven't heard how I did on any of them yet, we expect to hear back on them this Thursday, so we'll have to wait and see how I went. That whole week was late nights and constant studying, so everything else (like quilling, and cleaning my house and social engagements) just got left for the whole week.
This last week I've been busy again, but not with studies. On the 24th of June my husband's grandparents had their 60th wedding anniversary, and I was asked by the family to paint them a special tablecloth to commemorate this milestone. I'd never painted on fabric before, so last Monday I had a practice on a napkin and tested my fabric paints out, and my brushwork for that matter. I haven't painted in a long time now so I was a bit rusty (I won't show you the test piece...ick) but after a few tries I was ready.
On Wednesday I traced on the main elements of the design, and then painted the little flowers around the edge.
On Thursday I then got out all my paints and got to work on it
And by the end of a very long day, it was finished. I was painting all day, from nine in the morning to almost eight that night. Long day. But I think it came out quite pretty.
On Friday I had my wonderful mother in law over to muck around in the garden and have a cuppa, and then in the afternoon I quilled these cards
