We had a REAL good time, soldering and collaging

April 30th Rita of Mammabellarte and myself taught a class fabric Collage with Soldering accents.

5 students came and in the morning Rita led our the ladies through the steps of soldering words like AMORE, LOVE, MOTHER each letter an individual piece that would be sewn to the fabric collage we did in the afternoon.

Rita came with a slow cooker full of meatballs with yummy sauce, bread and we added ceasar salad yummmmmm!

In the afternoon, we worked on our fabric collages and I must say each turned out unique and beautiful.

Layers of lace and material and embellishments helps bring a story to each person's center piece....... a picture of loved ones.

Stay tuned later this summer for Fabric Collage class Suzi style :}

Getting Ready for Class

Rita and I will be doing our Fabric Collage with Solder Pieces on April 30th. I can't wait to see what the ladies come up with. I am always inspired by other people's work because although we each see something together we create differently.

Check out the preparation, next post the finished art. Have a wonderful week.

This is the kind of fabric collage we're going for

First a little coffee staining of material and lace.

Then a little line drying in the sun:

We'll be adding lace, fabric, jewels and soldered pieces....can't wait!

Nice Weekend in San Diego

Last weekend I went to Matilda's Mouse and Urban barn TWICE. They are just so yummy I love to go and went on Friday and Saturday with different friends.

On Saturday, after Urban Barn we even went to the Flower Fields to see Rita. It was a lovely, warm weekend.
