Tigerlily Makes...

Well, the small person started Big Big School today.  How can she be old enough to go to high school already?  It's all gone to quickly.

Anyway, normal routine can resume - whatever normal routine was...  I've been having some technical glitches (computer crashing when I try to use any photographs) so this won't be a long post, but i just had to share.

Tigerlily Makes is moniker of local feltmaker Lisa.  She has just moved to a new craft unit where she will be running not just felt-making workshops, but inviting other textile bods to come and teach their technique to people.  And if you follow this little linkette you'll see that yours truly is to be counted amongst these talented people.

You may have seen some of my campervan canvases before on my blog, Flickr, Facebook, etc.  Well I shall be teaching how to make one of these appliqued panels but with a twist.  Using photo transfer techniques, we'll be personalising the pictures so that the faces of your choice will be smiling out through the windscreen.  If you've always fancied owning a van but could never afford it well here's the next best thing.

The workshop is on Sunday 13th November, so plenty of time to finish this and possibly make more for Christmas presents.  It will held in Lisa's studio at Curborough Craft Centre near Lichfield and includes tea/coffee and scrummy cake plus all the materials you will need.


If you are interested then click on the link and contact Lisa directly to make your reservation.

Right.  I'm going to quit while I'm ahead ie before the computer crashes again.  Will post again very soon with news of my latest craft show, plans for a future one and the results of my dying session (Mmmmmm....).
