Ratty Tatty Papers

This week was the start of the Ratty Tatty Papers online class by Dale at the Thread Studio.
As usual Dale has set us off on a wonderful journey of learning new stuff--this time with serviettes.
I use serviettes a lot in my art and this is something to add to the list.
The serviette was given to me earlier this month by an internet friend Heather in Queensland and I thought I would use it in my first sample.
There are three layers in this piece-the base is a quarter section of the serviette then a gridded layer was added and lastly the top slip pieces were added.

Here is a photo of the gridded section after it had been washed.

Now onto the other part of this lesson.
This looks like it will be an interesting workshop.

Washing napkins? Now that is something I've never seen! This is VERY intriguing & can't wait to see more of what you're doing. Looks like fun!!

It is a wonderful workshop. I haven't used napkins but can see it in the future. Nice grid.

It's a lovely piece Doreen, is collecting Serviettes an Oz thing, I've never thought to do it before but am now getting quite a stack - where to keep them all?
