More playing and experimenting....

12th March 2019

Well, we have certainly experienced some very blustery weather the last 10 days, Storm Freya and Gareth have made their presence felt!!!

However yesterday looked promising in the morning and we all walked down to the little beach....


...water patterns in the sand...


...looking for treasures...


...the sheep joined us...


...saw 2 pheasant but by the time I got my phone out they had nearly disappeared!! Such beautiful birds...


....the walk back is up hill and slow so time to notice signs of spring...


...gorse....


....campion...


....'pussy willow'...


....the studio, and a cup of coffee!!


>>>>>>

On Sunday we all treated ourselves to a Sunday Roast at Heligan which was delicious!!

Studio work this week involved...

...... a tip for a design for shadow stitch on organza, 2 pencils taped together and moved freely across the paper....


...traced on silk organza with a water soluble pen....


....rather like the herringbone stitch effect.....


....not quite sure what this fabric is, cotton or hemp, thick weave, I drew out some threads and played with weaving and stitch. Like the ethnic look!


Open weave linen with drawn and pulled thread work...


.....continuing with my small lap blanket...


....my picture background is complete but need to add the petals and stamens when I get home, quite pleased with my hand dyed fabrics and seed stitch.


Acrylic paint on silk organza to use as flowers..


....painted Bondaweb using some gorgeous Lumiere paints....


....layered organza on calico base using Bondaweb, think I will add more and machine stitch, maybe use for a book cover.


Very wet and blustery this morning so we are all in the studio, drinking tea, sharing ideas and generally having a creative relaxing time!!

  1. I love the tracing on to silk organza and stitching. It's great for detailed work.
