Since my last blog it has been a case of concentrating on the
task to hand, escaping into my workroom and just getting on.
On Saturday a workshop in Brockenhurst, great day, no photos,
too busy teaching. However, the drive through the New
Forest was beautiful. The trees in their new coats of green,
yellow gorse, or as we say in Dorset, furzey, New Forest
ponies and Highland cattle ( which were a bit of a surprise).
Didn't manage to take photos of these either, but in the
middle of Brockenhurst loads of donkeys!
Two long indigo quilts done, still a lot of hand stitching to be
done on the third.
My plan might be working. We are promised 'summer' for
a few days which is great - this afternoon will find me
out there stitching in the sun.
Indigo vat tomorrow to dye some muslin and velvet.
Not all blue.
For an absolute change of pace - painted papers
needed for the exhibition. Do you know, I think
acrylic paints are even messier than dye.
