Continuing the Journey ......

23rd April 2014

 I posted my final course work off yesterday and then spent a couple of hours looking through all my lovely textile books to see what took my fancy!! I also made a list of jobs to be completed.

 Finished the bunting for my stall on our Fundraising day in the park.....


.....not sure about the pom-pom idea, will ask 'the committee' at our meeting tomorrow.

Pom-poms are so easy to make with my Clover Pom-pom maker, I now have 4 sizes!!

Next I decided on this book for ideas.....


...so many great ideas....



......found these samples to hand stitch....


.....some paper I made with silk tops...



.....and this piece of woven hand dyed fabric which has couched threads and some machine embroidery....


.....going to experiment with hand stitching and maybe even some beads. 

Lastly I used the Sizoflor I bought at the Excel to make covers for small handmade books.

This product was really easy to iron on brown/silk paper and I will decorate with stitch, papers, lace buttons etc....


...the top piece is the Sizoflor and I also used some of my jute and dandelion hand made paper.

I really must sort out all my stash, maybe in colours, wish I had a studio!!

Think I might try out my new wooden printing blocks on a variety of materials this afternoon........
