What a month....

It has been quite a month. Blogging over at on as you know ...all things Lutradur.

I now have a great selection of things to work on and found a new love.... burning... or should I say melting.

Plus I learned more about using so many things that it will translate into my work. 

One thing I have learned this month is preparation. I am  a last minute girl. This has been a hectic week and a half finishing up all I wanted to blog about on and then we set it on fire. 

My husband has even been checking out the posts. 

I am going to continue to blog about Lutradur... how I finished all those lovely pieces I posted and more that I never got to. 

I hope you check out the blog. It is a great one. 

And leave a comment so you can win a copy of Leslie Riley book on Lutradur or a package of goodies of all things Lutradur. There is time until May 31 to leave a comment. 

So that is what I have been up too. But of course I couldn't have done it without my friends Elle, Robynne, Al, Karen, Judy and Gunnel Hag and of course Leslie Riley being game to answer questions for me. 

That's it for this Wednesday

Information overload... bring it on

I have been so busy over at andthenwesetitonfire blogging that I haven't made it here to much. 

But I think through blogging regularly this month I have confirmed that I just love to learn and create. I also like to share. Writing does not come easily for me so I will have to learn to write less and give more pictures. 

My hubby is the greatest. He has been so patient with me and the commitments and other things that interrupt our lives. 

His greatest thing is to read and to listen to Great Courses.
coursesthese are cd's or dvds that are actually like university coursed taught by professors. \

I listen to some but others I will never watch. Like the physics or math is fun ones. 

I do have a photography one that is next on my list to do. 

But then my wonderful hubby let me buy all the Colourlicious DVDs

Not only did I get 

but I got these too! 

Now I can experiment away! Plenty of fodder for the blog. 

So in June I hope you follow me down the path of Sun Printing over on the andthenwesetitonfire blog

And some finishing!!!! of projects!!!! 

Off on an adventure of play.

The Month rolls along...

This month has been a crazy busy month... I keep expecting life to be different  and I will get time later but it doesn't seem to happen. lol So I guess at 51 I will just expect crazy from now on.

I have been so busy blogging on andthenwesetitonfire  on Lutraur that I have been hopping from thing to thing. 

So I invite you to go to the blog to see what I have been up to.

Elle has been helping me with posts this month as well as some other friends. Elle is posting on Thursdays or Fridays.

Leslie Riley the writer of the book

answered some questions and sometime this month C & T has agreed to give a reader of the blog a e copy of the book. 

So if you ever wanted to know something about Lutradur come on over to visit... 

In a way this is not a finish but it is a daily finish for me whenever I write a post about the process. 

I am linking up to the

Please come and visit this month and see some of the work that my Canadian guest friends are producing. First we are going through techniques and then we will see how and where we can use the stuff we have created.

May 1st and Lutradur

This is the month I have committed to explore Lutradur on the andthenwesetitonfire blog. I hope you pop over there to read the posts this month. Pass the link on to your friends. At some time I will be giving away an e book verison of Leslie Rileys book on Lutradur by C & T publishing. 

I am excited and nervous of the response. But my friends will be there along side me with their work. 
Leslie Riley author of the book will be answering questions. What a generous person to respond yes to my request. 

Amongst the workings of all things Lutradur in my basement there has been work going on with other pieces. A piece that I am doing with my fellow Fabrigos for submission to Fibre Content 2014. And guess what my portion will have Lutradur in it. 

This is a picture of part of what will be used in the piece. It won't be exactly in this form but will be there. 

Meanwhile Spring is suppose to have come to Canada... I live in the Niagara Region and we are in an area where tender fruit and grapes are grown. It has been raining on and off for days and we haven't had much warm weather yet. So I am hoping that April showers lead to May Flowers.
