Ian was helping out at his parents this weekend clearing out their garage so made the most of some un-interupted creative time - sewing away and then realising it was 2.30 and better have some lunch!
Two more red boat journal boats constructed (the top one with some gorgeous hand dyed fabric from Jo Lovelock - I'd rather buy than dye so will definately be using her services again)
Much time was spent on taking all the elements of this indigo sea piece and rearranging them ( and having to do some emergency surgery on my polystyrene design 'wall' with liberal applications of duck tape.) Still some way to go, trying to work out the best use of particular marks. I definately need to replenish my indigo stash. Landmark Contemporary Textile Fair ( excellent carrot cake!) and I bought another couple of pieces by Gill Banks in her 'watermarks' series. They're made of antique French linens and backed with felt rather than canvas or foam board, so much nicer than being behind glass.
I love buying other artists work! Thanks Ian for by birthday money in advance.
