The ladies spent the first day learning different thread painting techniques and on the second day we created a picture with a painted background and the details thread painted. My example used a photo taken on our trip to England May last year.
The weekend was most enjoyable. It was nice to be thread painting again after all the patchwork that I have been doing for the Australian Quilting Cruise next January.

Planning for the Australian Quilting Cruise is well on the way. Amanda has posted on her blog the one day workshop that she will be doing. This is titled 'Postcards'. Have a look on her blog for her examples. They are great. http://amandaspatch.blogspot.com.au/
We have had several bookings for the cruise. Most of the oceanview cabins are booked. There are limited number of these left however, inside cabins and the small balcony cabins are still available. Email me if you would like more information on this cruise.
