found in the park on my walk today: so beautiful.
an embroidered panel that had been sitting in a drawer is now a cushion….
I have gathered up a pile of panels that were made with no real purpose….a bit of a bad habit! and am going to settle down and select some to make some cushion covers…..hopefully there will be a few “finished” photos in the near future…….!!
On a whim last year I decided to try a sample of canvas work…just to see if I would enjoy the formal structure, and the effects I could have with colour within that. Somehow found myself with a whole bunch of samples!! …it was unexpectedly addictive…..and not having any idea what to do with them,I organised them into a cloth book, seemed the most logical way to store them!
had a bit more fun with the sketchbook today……..
A cold, wild and windy day today, with banks of showery rain passing through. I love the seasons! Inclement weather brings a chance to “play”….more sketchbook pages, mostly very simplistic “doodling” with colour, building up some ideas for motifs that may eventually translate to a textile piece:
also a couple of altered books in preparation: part of the enjoyment of altered books for me is the long preparation…… like good slow food!…..so one is still being cut and sewn:
and one being gessoed and coloured:
