Show report

We were very busy at our stand at the Show.  We met lots of  people interested in learning to do parchment as well as those who are old hands and surprisingly quite a lot who have tried it but fallen by the wayside.
It was nice to see some familiar faces- a forum friend Rona and  fellow CD Sunday teamie Jocelyn who came to see me and we managed to sneak off for a coffee break.

I worked on several things in between chats and demonstrations and did manage to complete a project from start to finish:

This is from a pattern by Judith Maslen and making this one enabled me to demonstrate embossing (deer , lettering, sun tool and edges)  Use of a grid to make the snowflakes and then  to show how to fix the finished glittered topper to the backing sheet I sewed it on using beads.


  1. It sounds as though you had a successful show Carol, and it's always nice to meet up with old friends. The deer looks beautiful, but the snowflakes around the outside are gorgeous, the beads look lovely sew into the middles.

  2. Hi Carol

    Sounds like you had a great day, I used to live near to Sandown park and know it well,
    This is a beautiful piece of parchment and gorgeous coloured background,

  3. Hi Carol, it sounds as though the show was a huge success. Your work is stunning as always, how you can concentrate with people watching amazes me. I love your snowflakes and the deer is fabulous.
    Hugs xx

  4. It is always a delight to see your parchment designs Carol and this is another stunner. It sounds like you had a good day at the show, it must be nice to meet up with friends.
