Rainy Days

What to do when the weather outside is totally uninspiring?
Get out the dyes, of course. Spent a very happy day preparing threads for dyeing, making up the dyes, and then making a very creative mess.

That's better.

Go on to Amazon and check out cameras.  Oh dear, I appear to have bought one!  Cannon Powershot A650.  Arrived safely, now set up and ready to go.   The sun is trying very hard today, but could do better. Perhaps tomorrow will bring a sun shiney day and a trip to the coast to play with new toy.

Of course, there is the last project on the go to finished.  3" x 27" strip for the Button Up Quilt challenge.   It's fused applique, mixed dyed fabric and free machine embroidery.  

That's the 'to do' list completed, now to concentrate on the next month or two.
I have workshops booked with groups in the West Country, plus lots going on at Walford Mill Craft Centre.   I m taking part in Create - Contemporary Craft Show, do check out the website for more information. Contemporary craft work by local and national makers - a feast for the eyes   At the end of May I am running a  two day Indigo workshop, then during the summer school holidays, tie dye and indigo workshops for children.  Always great fun.

During Dorset Arts Week (24/5 - 7/6, yes it is actually two weeks!) I have been invited to join Nina Squires (pastel artist) and Jenny Adams (wood and mixed media artist) at Stewarts Garden Centre, Broomhill, Holt, Wimborne.  Apart from an exhibition of our work, there will be workshops for children and adults.

I can feel another list coming on.
