Stencils,felt ball, printing and tea bread...

As you will see by the title of this post, our November meeting saw a very creative mix of techniques.
Still on experimental mode, we started with Jane and Margaret giving us a demo of their stencil cutting machines, then we were able to draw our own designs to use with Markals and paints.

Here are a few of our stencils...

Of course it wasn't all about playing, we've had lengthy discussions about our next challenge. Obviously I can't reveal any details yet, but in the New Year we should have some creative bits to share with you, we'll keep you posted.

Before I finish today, thank you to those interested in joining Textile Maids, currently we are closed to new members.

I almost forgot the honey tea bread, I had a photo to show you but sorry to say I deleted it by mistake, (new camera's fault). But I can tell you it was very delishious and covered with a layer of real butter.

I'll leave you with that thought, back soon.
