I feel in need of a trumpet fanfare or a drum roll at the very least as today I have finally finished my contribution to the showpieces for our soon to be Parchment Festival. (See side bar) (Over til next year)

Our Tutor decided on this picture of a pair of Swans floating serenely on the lake under the boughs of Wisteria, amongst the water lilies. I believe 18 of us started on this long journey of learning quite a while ago now but some fell by the wayside and eleven of us have finished against all the odds. We have had workshops and extra workshops but all in all a lot of chatter and fun as well as continuing to learn new skills from our very talented Tutor.
My picture below is now ready to go to the framers. The photo I have taken isn't brilliant but I am too excited about it to wait until daylight. I might change it later.

  1. Way To Go Carol! This is brilliant, well done on lasting the course. I've said it before - your work is amazing! The Pie Man has declared again - CarolJane the Genius.

  2. Thank you Pamela. You are very kind ... love to you and The Pie Man.

  3. So beautiful. Good luck at the festival. Hugs x

  4. You certainly deserve a fanfare for this, Carol - it is gorgeous!

  5. WOWEEEE Carol, definately a fanfare for this gorgeous work of art. It is absolutely gorgeous and I appreciate all the time and effort you put into making it. I know it will steal the show at your festival.
