Big disappointment. There were no green marks
Oh well back to the drawing board or is it the beach.
Success with the twisted bundle. The wrinkles have stayed and I do think they look like the ripples on the sand. Well near enough.
The wrinkles, on the scrim, were not as clear so I starched it and while wet pushed into shape.
Fairy dust has settled on this piece.
I must stay focused on the cabinet or I will be all over the place. Ideas coming in thick and fast and I really am itching to start stitching this piece.
3rd little book finished. It has been waiting for final pictures to be printed onto fabric.
Have broken 4 shells trying to drill 3 holes along the back of a shell. This was to hold feathers. Have given up and have decided to make do with 1 hole.
Will make another stitched feather to be placed behind real feathers. Using water soluble paper again.
This" cabinet of curiousities" has so many components it is taking much longer then I thought to come together.
Spent a really good day with 4 artist friends. Lots of cuppas- cake- chat but working as well. All accompanied by the home owners husband playing a saxophone. Magic. A really good day. I even came away with a present.
Do you know what this is?
I was told they were dried kiwi fruits. They are very light and dont seem to have anything inside. We set the textile world to rights. Discussed what is the best way forward for us. Talked round plans for the future. A really good day.
Sometime since I posted a peek into my studio ( cubby hole )
Iron is turned to the wall as it is not fit for human eyes.Bondaweb dye etc have taken their toll.
Plan for next week
1 Make another soft postcard.
2 Start stitching boxes.
3 Finish feather
4 Get my head round pattern for seagull.
Look in to see how much I achieve.
