Good morning desk hoppers
This week I’ve found a use for an old sales ledger I’ve had for
some time. I’m using it to keep fabric samples in, pieces of collage
and I’m going to use it as a sketchbook as well.
It dates back to 1930 and is from the estate of the late
Mrs Sarah Wood. It appears that she owned several properties
around the Yorkshire area. The book is a record of the rental income
and expenses of her company.
Rents ranged from £9.15 shillings a month to £21.5 shillings & one penny.
During Monday’s textile society zoom meeting we talked about
creating layouts with a grid. I’ve used the app PhotoGrid.
Crikey, I went down a right rabbit hole with that one and
couldn’t stop once I got started.
This one was made with an image of some sari silk ribbons
I have in a basket.
I’ve used one image 12 times, turning it round and round
and using different filters.
On Monday night I did an online zoom sketch class.
We packed such a lot into an hour and at the end of it,
it was amazing to see what we had achieved through a series
of exercises that lasted anything from 30 seconds to eight minutes.
I was pretty chuffed with myself and have signed up for another.
Isn’t zoom amazing, I’m getting the hang of it now.
Then off I went down the rabbit hole again with digital pattern
repeats, this time starting with the flower in this drawing.
Come and drag me out of the hole before next Wednesday
won’t you please.
Thanks for popping by
