My Mom and my sister came over again today so we could all spend some creative time together in the studio. We've been trying to fit these fun days in as often as we can - everybody deserves a little time out to play don't they? I know the room looks chaotic but that's what happens when the four of us are squashed in there. At least we hid the cake and the cookies while the photos were being taken.
Our plan for the day was to do some fabric painting. Maureen added lovely detail to several of the lizards she screenprinted here during one of our earlier sessions.
It's meticulous work but the lovely metallic paint has really highlighted the shapes of the quilting.
Mom is game for anything and happily painted away on one of Laura's new printed fabrics despite the fact that she had never done anything like it before.
The teacup panel is already looking great but she went home with a brush and enough paint to continue it at leisure. Knowing my Mom it's probably already finished, made up as a cushion and sitting on the sofa by now!
If you're curious to hear what Laura and I got up to while they were having fun with paint, Laura finished a little quilt that had been waiting for attention for weeks and I did the really important stuff - I made the pancakes! It is Shrove Tuesday after all and everybody needs to feed the body as well as the soul!
Hope you had a fun and productive day (hopefully with pancakes) too.
Bye for now, Linda
