Shapes I like to use
Carol of A Stitch in Time asked this question today. "Do you have a symbol or design that crops up regularly in your work?"
It made me think about the shapes that crop up fairly regularly in my work and I went to have a look in some of my old sketchbooks.
I do like curvy shapes and like to draw an amoeba like shape which is quick and easy. A flower shape which is also quick and easy and the wavy shapes which I have loved since City and Guilds days.
Plas Tan y Bwlchis full of shapes and symbols in the carvings and stonework and I find myself using these in my work regularly. I think Deb Hardman of Cold Feet Quilter will recognise one of them as it was used to screen print part of an ATC I sent her. The other shape is also from Plas Tan y Bwlch and can be found all over the place. It crops up regularly in my work. Thanks for making me think about this Carol.
I took these photos at Abakhan today.
