Area Day;


Firstly let me apologise for my absence life has been a bit busy. Yesterday was our area day and what a great day it turned out to be. We had a fantastic speaker, Liz Wall who wowed us all with her work and how she had gone on to develop her individual style. In the afternoon Liz gave a work shop which was also a great success. Liz's work is amazing and a couple of years ago I was privileged to do one of her work shops (The Owl). Liz provided a kit and in the kit was the basic owl shape which we bond-a-webbed to the back ground fabric. Next she placed a big box of various fabrics on the table and from this box we chose pieces of fabric and fussy cut them to make the owls feathers. Each owl was so very different and it was a most enjoyable workshop. Liz's technique stayed with me and I used it with her permission to make my Window challenge for the Christmas Party that same year. I adore my owl and he proudly hangs up in my sewing room, keeping a watchful eye over me. After all he is a wise old bird.
