Sorry I have not blogged for a few days but I am still excited and nervous following my announcement. I go on Monday to set them up and I hope they will be well received!! In the meantime - in what have I been up to?
Well I had a great day last Saturday with Maggie Harris (click HERE to go to Maggie's blog), playing with collographs and the Big Shot. I did just a couple of prints... very subtle, and I have been stitching on some of the previous ones (will show you another time).
This one was stronger but its second print was delicious.
QUEEN OF HEARTS
I have started a new idea for the Queen of Hearts costume. I needed first to create a back ground fabric. i need 3.5 metres of black cotton - so I dyed my own and for once it actually came out black!! (Sorry photo is sideways - I hate this new Blogger post writing thing!!)
I have finally put this quilt together. The photo does not give it justice - look at the photos HERE for the correct colour way.
SARI SILK BODICE
I purchased two bundles of recycled sari silk.
Spent a whole day ironing the stuff - that was an exciting exercise as several of the pieces looked boring until ironed.... see this tangle ...
This tangle was
really exciting when ironed....
Then I stitched the strips to a backing fabric
Today I cut out a bodice but there is nothing much to show just at the moment. So that's up to date. I have loads of ideas and not enough time to work on them!!
