photos as promised.

Collecting up some of the pieces done over the last few weeks,there is more than I thought.This felt bag is nearly finished-just a little binding to attach.
Cyanotyped willow leaves on an old French dress bought at a brocante-the fabric is so tough.Close up of the same dress.
Finally,a felt cut-work wrap,which is made using needlefelt and the wonderful machine,which will be lonely here for the next few months.

Autumn in the south west.

All the tourists have gone and the town is settling back into familiar ways again.
 Obviously the weather is just right for a  good crop of wild cepes.
Only proper shoppers here instead of browsers and watchers, as in the high summer.This year, the walnuts have been badly affected by the heat,so no chance of collecting from windfalls in a friends garden.Our hazelnuts have also been affected,mainly by the indigenous red squirrel, but we don't mind him/her having them.Pictures from the studio tomorrow, hopefully.
