Wishing you all Happy Christmas & a Wonderful New Year
aconite & nasturtiumI don't normally commit to weekly make but thought I'd join Kate Bridger in Made on Monday when she saw my work on the Textile Arts fb group. A necessary incentive to keep working ;) 5" x 5"
not too difficult........
nasurtium, foxglove & geranium
fennel seed head
fernThe last 3 were the result of some printing I did for cards, the day before my last craft fair end of November, which went ok...
A walk I went on when my sister in law visited in September to the Fairy Glen. Very popular with the summer visitors & I hadn't been before. The weather then was similar to now, altho it's probably warmer this month!
you either love or hate these little 'statues'
I had a go at the DMTV 3m challenge, a 'diary sketchbook' took me right back to my 'square a day' from 2010. I certainly didn't fill a page a day but I enjoyed what I did & will probably just carry on.
I probably wouldn't use a recycled book for a sketchbook again tho as it put me off 'having' to white out pages or stick down my sketch, not good for a procrastinator like me tho I do love a recycled book - maybe I should just have one already prepared laying around.
So NOBODY tried to guess what I was making with the knitted 'patches' !!They've made up my first handmade by me pair of knitted legwarmers - the last leg warmers I wore were for ballet & were a pretty pink in my very early teens ;) I so love these, exactly how I envisioned them. You should have seen me with my tongue hanging out with consentration relearning how to attach 2 sides with crochet on the internet.
The first warmer had enough capacity for 2 legs so I took a strip off, knitted some more & made some hand warmers, before I saw the ones on the DMTV blog! Just a bit of fun stuff....for me! I will try some 'twiddlemits' in the new year if someone shows me locally how to knit neatly (the link is to my fb page but it could disappear in a sea of 'Christmas' so do google it ;)....... worthy knitting I think. They are for people with dementia & the little attachments give the person something to fiddle with.
Beautiful day last week before the wind & rain came back & washed it all away. How lucky am I to live here?
