creative block removed

Finally found the energy to make something which isn't thrown straight in the bin, though there are still failures, or rather ,learning experiences which really count as such.No pictures of finished items yet, but they are on the way! Meanwhile, this is the busy rolling machine area-it really helps with experiments because it is so much quicker and if a project is less than perfect, I feel that not so much time is 'wasted'

creative block

Most of what I'm doing at present is going in the bin!Lots of learning via mistakes but it's a bit frustrating.So, here are a couple of things which made me smile.Above is some guerilla knitting in Agen.

The cat was sitting under a car near this notice and I thought twice about stroking it after reading the notice.

This advert column was also in Agen.Maybe I'll have some work to show after today instead of all this displacement activity!

more experiments

 Paeony petals and poppy  petals on silk.
 Piper print experiments-combining monoprint and drypoint.
 A lace felt sample-what to do with it?

Last ,but not least a cushion for the rather vibrant directors chair, using fabric from the Miao people bought for me by my daughter for Christmas.Waited all this time for a suitable use!
