My lovely sister Lee give me this beautiful bunny which she bought from Oxfam, filled with my favourites....turkish delight Easter Eggs. My mother used to give me little bunnies for Easter and now that she is gone, my sister is continuing the tradition. I LOVE this little fellow. Also knowing my addiction to fabric, and loving Indian designs, Lee also gave me a beautiful book...V&A Pattern Indian Florals and some lovely peppermint tea from T2 ...thank you Lee!
Look at the beautiful design on the bunny...I think I might have to sketch him for my journal. I will share some patterns from the book on my blog soon, they are beautiful. I have been sitting with a cup of peppermint tea and enjoying them.
I've also been adding to my stash of fabrics lately. I have a new obsession, indigo fabrics. I bought this Boro'd and Blue pack from Glennis Dolce of Shibori Girl. Beautiful hand dyed indigo fabrics...I just love the penny moon....so soft.
And these beautiful japanese kimono fabrics came from an etsy shop called Orime. Such quality fabrics... cottons, wools and wonderful service. I feel a japanese inspired project coming up.
I've also done a little dyeing myself this week. These two pieces were dyed using the leaves/fronds from a wattle tree and a small amount of onion skins. The marks on either end of the piece on the right were made by the bull dog clip I used to hold it all together. I was really pleased with the colour saturation on the piece on the right (cotton). The fabric on the left is a silk, polyester blend, lovely subtle colouring.
Although I've been quiet, I have still managed a little journalling over Easter and found some lovely blogs with beautiful Easter posts to inspire me.
Oops... a spelling mistake...plumage.... oh well! One blog I found over Easter with some lovely prints was that of Kyoko Imazu which I have included some images on my journal pages. See the beautiful tree above and the rabbit print below. I love her work.
Live in the sunshine,
Swim in the sea,
Drink the wild air.
