I got up early friday morning and the sun was just starting to hit the clematis at the perfect angle....the one that gets me out with my camera. We had a couple of days of unseasonably warm weather (up to about 24 degrees celsius!) and there were lots of people out as well as the flowers!
And then on the weekend I spent about 10 hours stitching. It was good to make some head-way on my pieced quilt for the Kemshall class. These are all my own hand-dyed fabrics and they are ones that I wasn't sure I would be able to use because some of them are quite distinctive, but I think (I think) they all work together here. I hope you agree!
And now I am wanting to do some printing, inspired by Linda Germain's printmaking class. (I notice that she has another one scheduled,with the sign-up this week. It really is a great class, do consider it). I am enthused to keep playing with the methods she showed us, and I want to try some of the ideas using thickened dyes. I bought some heavier papers to try printing onto and I have cut some more stencils. And I'm looking forward to playing with them all.
And so, check out both of these great sites:
More to do and so hopefully, more to show you later. I'll be back.....
