A blog about my interests, which include fabric landscapes and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

A fun day

Today was our regular monthly CQTeers meeting and, of course, we ate FAR too much chocolate and did FAR too much laughing.  In between all the eating and the giggling, we exchanged ATC's...

At our meetings we quite often have a challenge to create something.  This month there were two.  Irene challenged us to play with a screen printing kit she made for us and my creation ended up being the atc on the upper right.  Done on fabric.  The other challenge was to make a paper doll (of any sort) using a purchased paper 'kit' by Mary Englebreight.  I did the two atc's in the upper row using two of the images from the kit.  Sue made actual paper dolls from hers and I, of course, forgot to take a picture.  The two atc's on the bottom are by Irene (on the left) and by Sue (on the right).

A further picture of the silkscreening process I did...

I tried some on paper and some on fabric.

At our meetings we generally have a program where we learn a new technique or how to make something.  It was my turn to hostess so this is what I came up with...

 These flowers were made using duct tape from instructions found HERE.

The flowers on the right were made using felt and I'm sorry to say that I don't remember where I found the instructions.  If they were yours, please let me know so I can give proper credit. 


  1. The duct tape flowers look wonderful......whod have thought to use it that clever!

  2. It would be so nice to have a group like this to meet with. Sounds like you all have a great time and all your new ideas.




Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
