drama packed day
I have told Bruce to be very careful riding his bike.... We have also been watching the cricket - something we don't usually do but it is all a wee bit fascinating this round especially with the captain blowing a gasket.
I have woven up another piece of slow cloth - I have machine stitched it for the moment but I will hand stitch now - I might put one of my ferns on it - who knows? This is a new interesting fabric for experimenting which I will have as a kit as soon as the roll of it arrives for me to cut up and package. I have managed to get quite a bit of dimension which pleases me. I am not sure how I am going to put all of these together - I am not a quilt maker but I may link them up as big slow cloth. Who knows....
Lyn - what you suggest sounds great - and I will have to do some hand stitch but do post pics when you get done. I might do some weaving with some first. I have to admit I could have ironed faster but it was a hot day. It is worth ironing the sari ribbon out though. I haven't done any more to my piece but I have plans for top decoration. And of course if it is to be a cushion it will need a back. Does it need to be a cushion? Was going to today but got a little sidetracked. In fact we were going to go to the movies but that will be tomorrow - we couldn't drag ourselves away from the 'puters and telly. But we are going off to get fish and chips and take them down to the river where there might just be a sea breeze - it has been 40 today.
I also have a couple of pages of my pages for The Sketchbook Project - the deadline will loom up fast. Mine is titled This is Not a Sketchbook so it isn't. The pages are pretty flimsy so I have cut some out and replaced and gessoed some together. Still a way to go though.The paper on the left is a photcopy of some of my stitch and I have still to finish this page.
May everyone else's day be filled with less excitement.......
