Not much happening
Very little work done on" Coastlines". Not managed a beach visit - weather - other things to deal with.
Will be away for a few days so hopefully when I return I will get working again.
Added a map to 3rd book.
Made 1st postcard, not quite finished.
These were drawn on water soluble paper. Did them to take part in Sketchbook and Experiments For Textiles
Stitched paper to organza and stitched over drawing.
Washed paper away. There is always a residue of paper left. A soft toothbrush gets rid of it
Stitched to postcard. Will need to remove blue stitching it is too dark. Trying to finish it in a hurry I should have made a sample to check colour.
Not a lot for a week. Will try to do better, as teachers used to write on report cards, perhaps still do.
The " The Cycle Begins" and" Lughnasadh" are packed up and ready to be judged.
I will take them to EDGE selection day on Sunday 9th. Fingers crossed they get accepted.
If you are near this gallery do go and view, even if my books are not included.Fingers and toes crossed they do make the selection.
