We had a great week stitching and creating. All the gals designed a piece incorporating images they loved. Ene loved the arched door ways so she created a piece with a textural background using images of the Duomo and then incorporated a branch using her inspiration from the arched door ways. She added a ‘Sue Spargo Bird’ as she put it which she will embellish with colorful threads and fibers.
Christine loved some of the graphic images like the Fleur de Le and the tree which is a family image that represents one of the four quadrants of Orvieto. She incorporated these on her textural background and then embellished with couched branches using gimp and French knots.
Julie loved the doors to the Duomo. She designed a lovely vase full of flowers using the door image as her flowers. She added cedar trees and plans to add an arch and an image of a bird she saw in the Duomo. She will be adding many layers and stitching to her flowers.
Julia loves Orvieto as this was her second visit. Her texternal background was centered with a layered heart and she plans to add a bird and butterflies. She really enjoyed seeing how her center circles were coming to life with the textural stitching.
Jean decided to make a small fabric journal of all the images she loved pistachio gelato, images of the lighting, hand made journal, olive wood wine rack and scenery.
It was a lovely group of like minded people some taking my class and others enjoying the Taste of Orvieto trips. Kristi and Bill are fabulous and really set the lovely tone for the week
Will share a few more pics in my next blog
