MAKEUP BAGS

Using up scraps of curtain fabric to create these bags.


Rope Bowl

Whilst helping at Dishforth I have had the opportunity to make the rope bowl below. Surprising how long it took to complete with 10 meters of clothes line.  My usual colours.

Watercolour class with Marriette


My friend took me to a lovely afternoon class during which I produced the feathers. I thoroughly enjoyed the class after not doing any painting for over a year. 

Bookmaking

My recent workshop at Pateley Bridge took place in 1 April and we had a wonderful day creating a Coptic binding stretching my imagination to enhance the basic design. It's not complete yet as I intend to make a cord to wrap and tie it together



My Egyptian theme, as usual.



JOURNAL

Began work today on a page for our Creative Textile Group. Using my theme from C&G course, lots of materials available.

Water colour and graphitint for my artwork.

Textile using silk floss machine stitched onto water soluble fabric.
Hoping to get more inspiration now I have finished blinds and cushion covers!

MY DISTRACTION FROM STITCH

The new resident in my house is keeping me away from my craft room but I must get back to creating.

This is Riley, he's 16 month old Labrador retriever, a bit of a rescue dog, house trained but not good outdoors!! He's having a training session in the park on Monday hope I don't loose him.
He picks up lots of things in his mouth especially tissues and anything white, disappearing into his crate to hide them.  He's very loving and loves to cuddle up to me in the evening.

NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION

I must complete the items I start.  These table mats were only finished yesterday but I did complete four by Christmas Eve.




One more grey/silver to complete, giving me 4 of each design.

I must blog more regularly.
