I agree about the sulk and the walk. Not good for walking here today as we have had torrential rain, thunder and hail, so far - and the day is only half over!
My April plans for Oz have been moved to September - partly because the son may be coming here for Christmas and partly due to work pressures. The book may be at critical mass then, depending on how fast they progress.
The movie has worked. It's a much smaller movie as I think I was too ambitious before in both running length and resolution. It's the same theme - applying silk ribbons - and nothing particularly new. Now I know how to do it and how long it takes I can do something more exciting.
I was trying to make an embellished piece without using silk or wool fibres. So we have abaca tissue and a variety of yarns on a velvet with some silver foil Bondawebbed on. Then the ribbons and a piece of computer printed silk. On a Celtic theme as I am doing a Celtic talk this week. Here is my design. I only used the middle bit.
It gets very distorted by the embellisher and winds up like this.
I need to do lots more to it, but this is a start. So many people think that you can only use an embellisher with fibres.
And now for the mini movie.
