Belinda Studio's Event Day 2...picture heavy

 So on Saturday we had the Stump work class. Here is me with my machine.  We are making a flower you use fabric & Mylar and wire to make it. I used a veragated thread in mine.

 Here is Belinda at my machine showing us how to do the part that puts all the petals together, it is part of the design.
 Then she used my flower to show us how since the wire is in it you can bend the petals anyway you want.
 She took this picture of me and my flower for her website.
 This is the front and back of my finished flower.
 It was also Belinda's Birthday so the LQS got her a cake and we all sang Happy Birthday to her.
She is coming back in May for more classes I can't wait. You can go to this link Belinda Studios to see if she has a class near you. It is well worth the price and you have a wonderful time too.
Have a Blessed Week!

Belinda Studio's Event Day 1... picture heavy

 Last weekend I spent at my LQS for the Belinda Studio's Event.
 We had a class where we did the fishy up top on Friday. I'm making mine into a small bag instead of a pillow. We used Mylar and Angelina fibers in it. Then we had a demo on cording with your embroidery machine.
 On Thursday we had a trunk show, she has so many lovely designs.



These are only some of them the rest are still on my phone.
Next post will be the class we took Saturday.
