Printing, Playing and a Walk to the Beach....

13th March 2018


I made a printing block from Funky Foam.....


....printed on calico using acrylic paint as I don't have fabric paint with me...


....and stitched using a thicker perle thread using running, stem, back and blanket stitch to decorate.


Remember the tissue layers from earlier in the week....


....applied Acrylic Wax, cut into strips then wove them...


.....laid them side by side....


...cut into triangles....


...I intend stitching on the remainder of pieces, watch this space.

Sadly Clare left today and took all her wonderful birds, made from recycled beach finds, with her....





...sea kelp feet...


...limpet shell for the eye...

It was a glorious spring morning so Karen and I went for a walk down to the beach.

This is our barn studio with accommodation beneath....


....mother and baby doing well...


....a babbling brook...


....I can see the sea....


....the 'maternity' field...


....beautiful patterns in the sand...


....9am ...


....saw 2 seals this morning but they were too quick for me to catch in a photo!!!



Limpets and seaweed....



....another lovely day with beautiful scenery, good company and stitching, BLISS!!
