Dreamcatcher Page

As predicted the weather has turned a lot colder today and the first snow showers are already showing up. There is more snow to come and it's another day where staying in after that first dog walk seems the best option. That explains why I'm getting so much done at the moment. My trip yesterday to the dentist in Penicuik was the furthest I've been away from home since just before Christmas (and that was another dental visit!). So not only are my quilts progressing nicely but there is also plenty of time to fit in my classes such as Life Book 2015. This project is part of that and I had a lovely time playing yesterday. As I've mentioned before there will be no description here about how the pieces are made as that would contravene copyright for the class. There is still time to sign up if you are interested. Here is the link.
Dreamcatchers are a concept coming from North American Native Indian mythology and are usually three dimensional creations but in this class Rachael Rice shows us a way to make one that fits the page. I stuck pretty closely to the instructions although I choose different colours and my piece of lace at the top was substantially larger than in the lesson sample. It was the only piece of circular lace I found in my lace box. And I have to say I like the larger size.
The words I choose to put on my feathery pieces hanging down from the lace are also personal to me and I have probably gone a bit overboard with the sparkly stuff (as is my wont!). You can't catch that on the pictures but all those tiny dots you can see are sparkles.
 The glitters continue both underneath and on top of the lace.
One of the words I use was my word for 2015: Courage.
