Hopefully they sell and this becomes a successful venture - and if not, not harm done ;)
That same day, I received a phone call from my local council - they saw me on the local Artists Register, and asked if I'd like to teach kids how to cross stitch as part of next year's Adelaide Fringe Festival! Um - WHAT??! Hey, I have no experience teaching kids anything ... and she didn't even realise that I've just designed some kits for kids. So yeah, why not? What a day!!
As well as working on my tapestry (just needs the hem woven - pics soon!), I also finished making my next lot of dreads, since they are being installed on Thursday. Here are a couple of pics Anita took while I was hand felting them (excuse the dodgy quality - it was late at night):
I palm roll first, then roll out onto the towel. After doing this 3 times, I put them in a lingerie bag in the washing machine. This gives them a final felt, and a 'crinkly' quality which looks very cool ;)
Colours are hot pink, turquoise, white and black - I'm looking forward to getting them installed!
