Do you know, it all came off with baby wipes? Lord knows what they do to baby's bottoms but they are my most indispensable workroom item. Great for wrapping up brushes when you're using acrylics and can't get to wash them straight away.
Phew! What a relief.
Have been working on my mini class on mixed media for the Festival of Quilts. Can't have sewing machines or make too much mess. It's a challenge but I'm getting there. Will show you after the class, if it all works.
Today I am going to have lunch with Km Thittichai at The Range - a big store which sells craft materials, among a lot of other things. Kim is doing some demoing there. Her new book 'Hot Textiles' (Batsford) arrived today - making it into September WoW's book reviews by the skin of its teeth. There are some fantastic books out just now but this book is right up there with the best. It focuses on all the heat reactive materials, such as Tyvek, Lutradur and so on. We've seen them before but she has some great ideas for combinations. Here's a pic.
Yesterday was also a good day for web work. The taster for Quiltwow is nearly there and the articles are so good. I'm starting a new spot in WoW for really good textile groups (it will be in the free bit with exhibitions, so everyone can see it). The first is a group called Art through Textiles. Lovely work. Here is a pic by Linda Bellinger to whet (wet?) your appetite.
We also cleared up lots of loose ends and my to-do list looks much better. I hate it when you have to throw it away and have a new one. I love the ticks.
Add to this a quick picnic with the grandchildren at the local forest park and it was quite a busy day!
