This is day 11 of the alternative textile challenge with 6 people having completed their Tulip and both people completing Magdalena's Pup.
Update: Chris posted a very interesting question to all you participants. She wondered if you plan to steam your piece. She's worried since both ribbon and pantyhose are in her piece they may melt or singe. Chris, I can only speak for myself and I don't have either of those textiles in my piece. I don't plan to steam, but since it is supposed to look old anyway, mine is on the floor in my kitchen between the sink and where I prepare food. It will get pressed when standing on it and if anything spills on it oh well.
Cathy of Acorn Hollow has completed her Tattered Tulip and her sentiments were like mine....happy to have it finished. She used ribbon, old curtains, skirt lining, vintage bark cloth and vintage lace. She enlarged hers 10 x 10 and said it was much harder than she thought.
Lauren has accomplished a lot since her last posting. But me thinks she can't wait for this to be done so she can go back to her wonderful warm wool. Your colors work well together ~ I especially like that olive green in the background. Oh, and great colors.
Breaking News, this just in.......
textiles and can't wait to do the challenge. She has, or had, an active BLOG and welcome her to the group.
Donna, who also has a BLOG has joined us as well and has chosen the Tattered Tulip. And, would you believe that Margaret, who has already finished her Magdalena Pup wants to do the Tulip challenge also???
Wow, am quite surprised by the second wind this challenge has taken. I'm having a glass of wine so don't hold me to what I'm about to say 😊 but maybe, just maybe I'll do another challenge along with the rest of you and choose my textiles more realistically and more hand friendly.
Tomorrow I'll post something else other than challenge updates to give everyone a break. But will post something for sure. Happy hooking.
