Today is the day the Tangled Textiles first challenge projects are going to be revealed. Make sure you pop over here a few times to see what everyone has created!
Our first challenge was `Games`. Very early on I had an idea of doing a childhood game that we played a lot as kids - Hide and Go Seek. Living in the country, throughout the summer we often played outdoors in the evening until it was too dark to find anyone anymore. What fun memories this challenge evoked!
Without further ado, here`s Ready or Not!
I had a lot of fun trying some new techniques - stamping and painting, and did some thread painting and yarn couching, raw edge applique. Some things I would definitely do differently, but all in all I am very happy with how it turned out.
Fabrics include commercial, batiks and some hand dyes, and I managed to find everything I needed in either my scrap basket or my stash, being very happy with how the free woven piece I had created some time ago for a mug rug swap fit so perfectly in the area in the upper left where I wanted the impression of sky and fir tree.
I can`t wait to hear what the next challenge will be!
