We experimented with colour proportion by examining pictures of nature and the world around us. All in all it was a wonderful course, and all from the comfort of my home. You can check out the various course offerings at the Gail Harker Center for Creative Arts, here.
I also had the opportunity to explore my new community and discovered a thriving quilt guild here. Their website is here. I joined this friendly group, was given a "new member" button, instructions to help me make the Guild's standard name tag and an invitation to get together with a member of long standing that would act as a "buddy". Nice to meet you Nancy! I managed to complete my name tag in time for the meeting tomorrow. Here is what it looks like.
Oh and let's not forget that along with six others I have also been studying with Catherine Nicols, where we have been learning various different techniques to add to our artistic toolbox. We've covered such things as the elements of design, pointillism, and paper & stitch to enhance our work, and there is still more to come. In the meantime, I'll leave you with a picture of one of the samples I created from Catherine's class.
Like I mentioned, time flies when you are having fun. Till the next time, stitch creatively.
