Up north in Lancashire, UK, it feels like it’s never stopped raining
since the new year kicked in.
It’s been perfect weather though for staying in and getting on
with course work and a new prompt with the No Rules Textile Society.
Saying that I’ve been wrapped up warm to avoid putting the heating on.
I’ve a new notebook for our zoom meetings and had the new
Celia Pym book bought me for Christmas. It’s a history of
damaged and repaired garments, who owns them and what
happened to them.
This is a fascinating project.
One dress, stitched by 370 embroiderers, in 50 countries
over 13 years and now on exhibition around the UK
After a great zoom meeting on Saturday with my textile friends
all around the world, I got stuck into the new prompt COLLAGE.
The stash of magazines I keep came in very handy for the
first task, creating flat lay paper collages.
Next up I’ll be moving onto creating fabric collages,
possibly working with old samples from last year.
Saturday night was the start of our friend’s Trish & Lee’s
60th birthday celebrations. If they are anything like me it
will be never ending haha.
After I posted last weeks blog post we went to see the new
Whitney Houston film. I know a few of you mentioned you had seen
it. Well it was amazing. It is so sad that her life ended as it did though.
Today we are off to see the latest Tom Hanks movie
A Man Called Otto.
Let’s hope the rain holds off.
See you soon
