Miscellaneous!

7th May 2015

Yesterday I started a fabric collage to fit in a frame that I have had for ages....


....decided against the skeleton leaves when I free machined....

....instead cut long leaf shapes from a very open scrim.....


.....cut out poppy petals/centres using the soldering iron....


....added some hand stitching and beads.....


....rather like it!

::::::

Went for a walk on the beach this morning....

....lots of machinery and activity but still can't find out what is going on!!


Lots of stones have been washed up but I didn't collect any today....


.....spoke to a fisherman washing lug worms....



.....I said they were bigger than I thought they would be, his reply was these are only small ones!!


Took this photo of part of a rusted trailer washed up on the beach because I loved the colours!!



:::::

Collected some flowers and leaves for pressing....



.....used my stitched sari fabric to cover this spiral bound sketch book....


....will complete the back cover and show tomorrow!
