I learned a new painting technique recently from a local shop, Sunday Morning Chic. The proprietor, Anita, has started holding workshops now that her store is in a more centralized location. The class I attended dealt with using her supplied paint brand Fusion. Using the beeswax rubbings to create worn spots we painted step stools. I think I will use this etching with a dark brown paint for this piece. Just have to hit up a few 2nd hand stores for a frame.
For another gift for some of my older customers, I started my first mitten from the pattern by Diane Arthurs called "Mitten Friends". The one i began yesterday will be Colette.
I've stitched it on sparkly Aida.
