What did Goaty do?

Post by Guest on Fri 10 Apr 2009 - 8:19

After my visit to post office. potato fritters and a post box near Teabag's house, i had another cuppa with Teabag. We were discussing that i would love to do an art course, well she suggested we pop and visit someone she knows well who has done a course recently.

Unfortunately, she had done a machine sewing/more of a textiles thingy...but it was great to see the handmade books she had designed and made to hold all her samples, techniques and ideas..i really must do one or two of these. She is also and avid papercrafter, beader etc..so it was super to chat with her..i do know her too but only through craft group and Teabag.

She showed us the new room she is using as her craftroom, its bulging with goodies and she showed us her beads..wow..so many...Jo,you should see the tubs, jars and boxes full of them. I just wanted to go shopping for beads by the time i had finished.

She is making Teabag a super duper birthday pressie...i will let teabag tell you what..and hopefully later we will see finished project.

I spent ages last night with a frame i had bought from the tip (2 for a fiver) one had glass this one didn't and this one had green paint or pen on it, and a huge dark knot in the wood..not raised. I have bitten the bullet and I painted it witha creamy matchpot of emulsion..several coats..and then i have used a dry brush with a matchpot of 'Mickey Red' (disney Mickey mouse) it looks 'bright' and cheerful..i will take a photo later...i want to use it for my twinchies but it isn't quite right size to put them nicely...so i will do an 'Art' attack on it with something else...

When i have posted it..i will be looking for inspiration from you all. I thought about a patchwork of inchies or twinchies with all those little bits and bobs i have been sent , given or have collected that just sit there doing nothing but looking pretty.

An art course sounds good, Goaty.

All sounds very intriuging. Try your local adult ed, might be something on line. We got a leaflet through this weekend so it seems the right time for a new course now.

What did Goaty do ?

Well, what a heading for a thread. Have to admit the first thing that
came into my head was the she would be eyeing up the eye candy.
What else does she do ???????????
