At last I have found some time to do some creating - albeit in a small way.
A couple of weeks ago I went to an art exhibition of Christl Berg (who works in digital media - if you google her name you can see some of her work). One wall of the exhibition space was covered in leaves - so I made mine from fabric. I have painted and thread drawn on the leaf but the backside (which is a batik) actually looks more realistic! Need some more creativity.
Next week I am going on retreat so needed some simple projects to while away the time.
The first is using some Australian toile which I have dyed with Parissien essence to take away the stark whiteness, although it hasn't shown up in the photo. I am going to make up some 9 patches with the other fabrics for the quilt.
And I've always wanted to do a square in a square - was browsing through my book the other day and came across Judy Turner's scrap book. So I raided my stash (including some of my precious fabrics, which have remained precious for far too many years), bought a few to make up the numbers and have started to cut up the strips so I can hit the ground sewing - so to speak.
Watch this space for the finished projects.
