Seeing as my computer is driving me mad as it is soooo slow, I thought now would be a good time to think about a 'Challenge' which my hubbie and I joined up with the other day.
It's being run by one of my favourite local Crafty / Textiles shop and is in aid of Cancer Care as a celebration of their 5th Birthday.
The theme is 'It Started with a Square' and we need to produce either:
Class 1: A hanging/ quilt/ picture no largether than 1 metre
Class 2: A 3D item - a bag, cushion, box, book etc
As part of it we have to incorporate some of their Texere Variety Thread packets (variety of differnt threads) and can be made from any textile medium and by any technique. At the end we all get to display our products at a big exhibition locally so a good way to advertise as well as helping CancerCare.
AAAAAAARGH! Why do I get myself into these things? So now have to get my thinking cap on and decide what to do.....not helped by the fact that we were proudly told by the shop owners that they already had over a hundred people entering!!! No Pressure then!!
So far the idea is to embroider the threads together using soluble film to make a square which can then be incorporated into a felted bag.....I'll probably change my mind by tomorrow so will let you know what I come up with!!
