Experimenting with a Hammer, Leaves and Fabric...

1st July 2015

Very warm here today but no sun, think we need a storm to clear the air!

Went to the park to do a little 'dead heading' and tidying, fabulous colours and shapes....


.....magnificent poppies....


....superb seed pods...


>>>>>>>>

Came home and decided to try hammering leaves on fabric....



....print...



....print...



....I wanted to use this in my new project but colours aren't quite right, will save for another day.

Also I hammered on the crazy paving and I should have used a flat surface......

Prepared this slub silk with running stitches....


...gathered ready for stitching for my project.

Had an e-mail today with my flight times to Vietnam in October.....

....a little excited!
