A textile page
This is a page of Textile Art that I stitched for my Australian RR. This was at the time of the Tsunami and as the topic was Recycle and Regenerate, I decided to base it on all the coffee mornings and jumble sales held all over the world to make money to help the victims of this terrible disaster.
Here is a purple page, digitized, but not yet stitched.
I went to Chester today and found some bargains in Acrylic paints, not that I don't have enough already, just that these were too good to miss, but I did resist buying any more books! I also got some thick, scrunched up, gold hand made paper which I'm sure I will find some use for. I also bought two A2 sized canvases which I need for a project I have started.
After a meal I went up to my loft and did some work in my journal, then some stitching and then cut out some ATC'c that I had nearly finished. I didn't quite finish them, but I will do that tomorrow hopefully. Now why would I do this? I wish I could do this more often, but maybe this is the beginning of a new positive phase. Yes, I think it is. Now I have managed to convince myself.
I am full of ideas, perhaps far too many of them, but I have found it difficult to get going again after my holiday. How do you get over this sort of thing?
