Beautiful Hollyhocks

Saturday, March 21st, 2009

I am so proud of the students in my Hollyhocks class.  I have photos of some of their completed projects.  Hollyhocks is a machine needle felted project, including lots of extras.  It is beaded, felted from both sides, and has a nifty  way to do your flower cutting.  (If you were in one of my classes, you know the secret.)  Great job on those borders and your finishing touches.

I couldn’t be more proud of these floral arrangements, they are fabulous, and even better, they are Finished!¬† Absolutely great work ladies!¬† If you are still working on yours, it’s not too late.¬† Send me a photo of this or any felting or doll project you have finished.¬† I love to see completed projects!

Here are ¬†Bev’s¬†and Diane’s

I’m so far behind in my posts.¬† I guess blogging hasn’t become a high priority for me.¬† I’d rather be teaching classes, or at home making samples for new classes.¬†

Below¬†are some¬† photos of the classes I¬†recently taught in South Carolina.¬† It was such a great trip, as usual.¬† I started off my visit by doing a demo at the Myrtle Beach Quilt Gala.¬† I had a mini trunk show with some hands on time for the participants on the Babylock Embellisher.¬† It’s so hard for me to stay on track with my planned speech.¬† Once I start talking about needle felting, I just have to share everything I know.¬†¬†I absolutely love machine needle felting!¬†¬†¬†I met so many wonderful people who¬†were equally excited to learn my style of needle felting.¬†

I was so pleased to see that Meg F.¬† won¬†First¬†¬†Place for her needle felted Iris Garden quilt, she took in my class.¬† That was the one day I didn’t have my camera with me.¬† I hope Meg will send me a photo so I can add it here and show you her beautiful quilt.¬† That was very exciting.¬† You can soon see the original on my website, soon.¬† www.BarbaraPotoczny.com¬†

Following the show in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I taught classes at Accent Sewing in Murrells Inlet.  Following are some photos of my Hollyhock class.  The ladies did a wonderful job on their wall hangings.  They should all be very proud of their beautiful floral wall hangings.  Looks like they are all just about finished.
