Holiday

I've been so lucky to have been away on a four day creative holiday with two friends, Ann and Maria, to the wonderful Kingcombe centre which is part of the Dorset Wildlife Trust set up. Our course was using the embellishing machine with Sandra Coleridge at the helm.

MARIA'S WORK
First session was using pre-felt, which I can't say I'm a great fan of but I can see it's uses. We were then encouraged to do some fancy hand stitching on our work.
ANN'S WORK


MY PIECE - NOT MY FAVOURITE !!
My next effort was a lot more pleasing for me and my first attempt at a landscape, which is a surprising change for me - much of my work is abstract or shape orientated, rarely what I would call a 'picture'.

HEATHLAND    
I have since cut the black away from this and mounted it on to a canvas board - it has certainly enhanced it, I feel and now it's ready for the forthcoming exhibition.

HEATHLAND - MOUNTED ON CANVAS
I must also show you the beautiful pieces created by my friends - I do have their permission to share.

BOTH ARE ANN'S - SHE HAS DONE THIS BEFORE
MARIA'S WORK
We had wonderful views, accommodation and a lovely chef cooking for us - three course breakfast, lunch and evening meal! Expanding waistlines are the only downside. We can't wait to go again.
