Cards and Yarnbombing!!

20th February 2019

Been a bit under the weather the last week with a cough and cold that seems to be going around so haven't had much energy!!

Experimented with sandwiching a very open hessian between tissue paper using Gesso....

...haven't used them yet but like the texturing for a mixed media piece or background.


One of the projects my craft group has done is preparing to yarn bomb a tree in the community....

....owl made by Sue...

....some of the group with our tree... was a good project and apparently people have been stopping at the gate and taking photographs and the children have loved it, good to make people smile!!


Made some fabric cards for my craft stall in April using hand dyed fabrics from my stash and free machining.


Also made a wall hanging using one of my indigo dyed tea towels and old hand made lace....

.....and a wall hanging for my bathroom window....

...difficult to take a photo against the light, the fabric is a stiffened scrim and I have used recycled sari silk strips and shells to embellish, rather pleased with the result!

Visitors this weekend then off to Cornwall on 1st March for a course, hope this cough/cold disappears by then!!!
