Thinking of warm weather here in cold Kentucky.

As my mind wanders from this coldness I am thinking of my upcoming class in Sarasota, Florida at the wonderful shop - A Good Yarn! March 20, 21, and 22  A Good Yarn will be hosting the class for a wonderful Leigh Design from the Imari Series - Flaming Fowl.

This wonderful piece has techniques, threads and embellishments galore!  Project  is hand painted on 18 ct canvas and requires  14” x 14”  stretcher bars.  Experience the versatility  of Wonder Ribbon,  Swarvoski crystals,  and many scrumptious threads including Rainbow Gallery Sparkle Braid and Patina, DMC, Pepper Pot Silk, Planet Earth,  Kreinik Braid, Vineyard Silks,  Gloriana, Planet Earth and Caron Impressions.  Dimension is created with fantastic threads and stitches that add ‘flames’ to the Flaming Fowl.  Play with Wonder Ribbon to give movement and dimension to the tail and add sparkle and fire with Swarvoski crystals.  OrNue’ technique band, raised bands  and woven flower  add to the delight of our journey in creating this piece.

The finished model is on display at the shop so be sure to stop by and see it in person so you can appreciate the dimension created in this fantastic tail and see the real bling all those crystals flash before your eyes.  It truly must be seen to appreciate its beauty.

Vicki and Susan will be more than happy to give you all the details of this class.  I would love to have you join us so we can all play in the sun!
More later . . .
