A beautiful piece of Indigo Resist dyed cotton (Chinese I think) bought recently from Ziguzagu ... couldnt resist it. This piece is 1.80m long and I think will make a beautiful runner for my table. I couldnt cut this one up!
There hasnt been a lot of stitching or painting happening recently. A bit of purchasing though!!!!
I really enjoy my journalling and while out today I came across this book, "Art Escape" by Dory Kanter. Lots of great ideas for daily journalling. Also bought three new paint brushes... and a new tube of gouache .... violet bluish. A grey/purple colour. Nice to add to my colour palette.
Purchased some lovely variegated red sock yarn to crochet a scarf for a friend. It's getting cold where she lives. Some new magazines arrived for inspiration and did do a little bit of fabric weaving with some scraps from my basket.
While I was in the UK I visited "Liberty" and purchased a metre of fabric (I was very restrained). I dont have a lot of Liberty fabrics, so when out and about today I bought two more pieces to add to the 'Liberty Stash' for a project down the track. Also found these lovely linen tapes and some vibrant Kaffe Fassett ribbon....no project in mind, but just loved them. Lots to inspire in that lot. ( think if you click you will get a better look, the linen tape is lovely).
It is Spring, I couldnt resist sharing these ranuncula's and leucodendron's I have in my lounge room.
Next post I will have been more industrious....I will be stitching along in the Cloth Diaries and journalling with Roxanne .... so should have something to show!
