Parchment Craft Workshop

For my lovely friend Carol who does the most gorgeous Parchment Work.

These are 4 out of 6 butterflies made from a Parchment Craft Workshop I recently went to with my Sister. Our tutor is a special friend and we first met her back in 1998 when we attended the start of her evening classes.
The Pink & Purple ones were completed in class (with a little help from my Sister), the Blue and Lemon ones I have made at home.
I am trying to get back into this wonderful art, however I am waiting to see a specialist as I have been diagnosed as having 'Macular Hole' in my left eye. Once it has been sorted I have made a promise to myself to start again.

Thanks for your comments, I appreciate you taking time to read my blog.

They are beautiful Christine and please stop hiding your light under the bush (or something like that). They will make such lovely embellishments for your cards and I am so glad that you are going to carry on with parchment.
Thank you for the nice things you said.

How talented you are, Christine. Too modest by half! Your butterflies are exquisite. Hope your eye gets sorted soon and you return to this skill again.

Christine these are just beautiful. I didn't realise Carol had such competition. Don't let this talent go to waste, you must keep it up even if you only come back to it after your eye is sorted.

Just beautiful Christine. I tried parchment this week as a challenge, no way could I produce lovely work like this. Hope your eyes get sorted soon for you.

Lovely work Christine, just wish I had more time. I am working on a wedding sampler at the moment which has to be finished and be framed by October and have just crocheted some cushion covers for a friend so time is at a premium. BUT I am keeping my eye on you!!!
