It was very exciting to get along to The Playful Market today and see all the fabulous Full Circle pieces on display, including our own works.
I'm hoping the rain didn't affect the takings for the day as there was a huge amount of work done by many to get this event up and running, particularly by this lovely lady.
Here is my piece - that I titled "My joy".
Enough said really.
Obviously it's my three little chicks in their bathers.
It is stitched from a photo taken near Coffs Harbour in September/October of 2010 and evokes memories of a wonderful family holiday.
This is one of my all-time favourite photos.

Here is Miss L with her work - quite hard to photograph as she did a series of needle feltings that she called "Everybody is different".
She's a very wise little girl this one and went about creating this piece all by herself - making each of the faces with different coloured skin, hair or eyes and the top one has freckles (not a bad case of measles..!).
I particularly loved her attention to detail - that she wanted the 'red dot' on the forehead of the "brown skinned lady".
She's a thinker.

Miss A is a more literal girl, much like her mother!
She stuck with the 'circle' theme and created a bear made of circles - that she called "Circle Bear".
It was stencilled onto the fabric over a few days using different colours and the details she drew on by hand.
|Sheridan you may have helped create a stencilling monster here!|
Miss G went with her mixed media collage - also known as 'stick down anything sparkly or pretty that you can find with copious amounts of craft glue'!!
Boy did she have fun making it.
The cleaning up - not so much fun...
She titled her piece "Pizza with a spider".
That's the spider on the left in case you weren't sure.

I wasn't fast enough to get my hands on Bron's work of art but I am very pleased it has gone to a lovely new home in NSW!
Well done Wendy - I hope you are putting your feet up now for some well earned rest!
PS - Cam has opened the sign-ups for her Choose Your Own Bag Adventure next month so head on over and put your name down to join in.
