This week is proving to be so quiet after all the high jinx of our
time at the caravan last week. The fun and laughter seems to have
been left in a carrier bag somewhere on the M65 on the way home.
I have managed to lose myself in a flurry of fabric printing. After
Thursdays zoom meeting our beloved leader Jayne suggested that
I work on a series of designs based on the pieces created earlier.
The mark making is done with a sample tube of emulsion paint,
delightfully named Dance Hall.
Once the paints dry I’ll work back into them and add more
marks, stitch and possibly appliqué. There’s no plans for an
end product, I may just keep them as fabric samples in a book
or if there’s enough make a single patchwork curtain.
I’ve finished reading Grayson Perry - Portrait of the artist as
a young girl. Its an uncomfortable read as there are parts of
his younger days that are difficult to read. In the end I did
think well most of us aren’t the people we were growing up,
and the person he is now is someone I thoroughly admire.
Next up is this novel by Yorkshire author, Imogen Clarke.
Reluctantly Home is a story of two women both looking to
forgive themselves for events that changed their lives completely.
Over the weekend there’s this section of the garden to clear
of weeds and thin out.
Mum comes home from three weeks in Oxford at my sister’s
and my goddaughter Olivia who lives in Leicester is visiting
We’ve last weeks Sound of the Sixties to catch up on,
the final of The Great Photography challenge to watch
and this weeks Gardeners World episode.
Whatever you’re upto enjoy yourself and make
sure you fit in some laughter.
