I so wish that I could have got to the exhibition - wonderful work and all the postcards and ATCs are magic. My piece is below.
Jane Wild was papermaking at Beyond Stitch yesterday and I borrowed her buddha mould and made three face pieces.
I have an idea for a triptych piece for a blank spot on my dining room wall. Watch this space.
Thanks for all the New Year wishes. I was going to get all retrospective in my last blog and do a mini review of the highs and lows of the year but then Clive brought my tea in and now the moment has passed. Always easily diverted by food.
Julie - who could resist - it's bound to come in handy.
Hippoipi - Is that the mappa mundi cathedral? If so, then I've been there and loved it.
Did the liming wax Heather and it's lifted it. Good advuce.
Thanks for all the feedback on stuff, very useful. Anna - I'm quite determined to buy very little this year - apart from some Moonshadow Mists and other essential supplies.
Don't see Smudge as a 'growing out of it' sort of cat Judy. His latest exploit was to steal a large, wet sponge from my neighbour (who is a builder) and drag it in through the cat flap. I removed it , he brought it back and this went on all evening.
Gill - good resolution - I've been making more stuff lately - some for the exhibition and some for the online class. It's been a great excuse.
Olga - what a great idea - Ready, Steady, Stitch - must work out a way to do it. what about if we all went on-line together and made something? With a Yahoo group to post our step-by steps. Only problem is the timing as we're all stretched around the world.
Hey, Wabbit - another group for stuff? Possibly, or maybe something quite different - I have ideas.
Margaret - today I have no energy but a pain in the bum and leg. Good excuse for a bit of web surfing on the sofa,
Kate - I was thinking of adding some recycling elements to the 'stuff' book. We have a great resource locally - the scrap store. Last time I went I got loads of goodies, but another time it will have nothing to offer.
Must go now as Mr Tesco has arrived with the shopping - the bad bum/leg was a great excuse to order on line.
