My Secret Project!

25th May 2016

Remember I said I was starting a 'secret project' when I was on my course in Cornwall with the lovely Anne Griffiths, I am now going to show you the stages, it has been a real learning curve.....

....A&J bought a house, I drew it from the estate agents photo...


.....placed calico over the drawing and traced with pencil....



.....next used a mixture of fabric/acrylic paint and a very small brush....


....I should have used unwashed calico as the paint 'bled' into the fabric....


...after stitching, mostly hand stitching which I really enjoyed doing....


....unfortunately the door is on a bit of a slope which I didn't notice until I took the photo!!!

I think I might like to do this again and get the bay/door more upright!!



Anne's community project can be found here....


...definitely worth a look!
