This week …

2 new covered journals – the top one is a collage of various hand printed cotton fabric pieces with a heat transfer printed ribbon and the flower motif is a digitised design which I’ve extended by using scrunched and frayed fabrics.
Below: polyester satin fabric – heat transfer dyed & stitched. The centre panel is a collage of metallic scraps with the flower free embroidered on dissolvable.

Saturday at the Designing Women meeting, Juliet showed us how to felt a vessel. (mine above) Unfortunately It’s not thick enough so I’m not sure what I’ll do with it – might have to cut it up and use the felt in other projects.

Before the felting we went for a walk around Piney Lakes – a lovely bush area where our meeting place is – to take photos and gain inspiration. Below: the bark of a cork tree which I ‘d never seen before.

My DH has managed to tear the cartledge in his knee and is on crutches so I’m having to run around for him. I hope it comes good without further treatment. It’s a busy week – I’m teaching another Painting & Printing with Procion Dyes workshop on Saturday and we’ve got friends coming for lunch on Sunday.

  1. I love the colours in your journal covers. Torn cartledges are very painful so I hope your husband recovers soon. The bowl looks to have turned out really well.

  2. Love your journal covers.
    As for your felt work you could continue to felt it further. This will shrink it and at the same time thicken it up. It is a pity to chop up something that looks so good.
