I have a new passion! I have been eagerly awaiting Sue Bleiweiss's Fabric Journal making class which officially starts tomorrow ( 2nd). I was delighted when she posted the first lesson early meaning that it was available on a weekend day rather than a (supposed) work day. ( I couldn't guarantee how much work would have got done tomorrow if the lesson had arrived into my email box early on!Given that I have been so jaded over the level of instructions I have been getting on my City and Guilds course I was a little apprehensive as to whether the lesson would be worth the cash. I can report that it most certainly is. Clear instructions that work with plenty of photos and at just £26 for 5 classes, good value indeed.
The only disaster was because I assumed that, for the purposes of ironing fusibles, baking paper ( greaseproof paper) would be the UK equivalent of parchment paper. Once I had fused the paper to my fabric I realised that it was clearly not. Ooops!
I have been limited in my papges embellishment becuase my paper stash consisted of three sheets and a packet of card squares... clearly that is now going to change pretty soon! Now if you will excuse me I have to go and web surf for paper shops and maybe make just one more.....
