I absolutely love taking classes and attending crafty retreats but I am s-l-o-w to finish any of the projects. Upstairs, I have a large pile of UFO's (unfinished objects) from prior events I have gone to. It seems if I don't finish a project while in class, it most likely won't get finished once I get home.
First up was Beth Leintz's class. We decorated peat pots with fabric and ribbon and made fabric stuffed flowers, birds and hearts to put in the pots. I absolutely *loved* this class. In fact, I spent the whole day thinking of all the fabrics I could use once I got home to make some more of these little lovelies. Don't you think mine turned out so cute? Each person's creation was so different and it was fun to see certain personalities emerge from their project.
Next up was Karla's fairy cloche. Although more challenging, I really enjoyed creating this and then decorating it inside and out. I've been dreaming of the variations I could do to this project. Some people were frustrated by the process of building the structure but for some reason, this came fairly easy to me.
The last class of the weekend was taught by Karla. We used a special Mod Podge to make the main pendant and had lots of pearls, beads and charms to use on our necklaces.
For Birdsong weekend, I must have been in a really good creative space because I managed to finish every single project! Yay me!
