Shop is revitalised

Due to my attention being focussed elsewhere, my shop has languished  somewhat with very little for sale in it. Well no more!

These are some of the smaller items on offer there at the moment. I am also hoping to offer some textile artworks as soon as I can get round to it.
I have also taken advantage of the very unseasonable weather to dye some threads. It is such a long time since i have experimented with variegated and I have forgotten how pleasing it is to watch how the colours mix and intermingle to create new ones. They are of course natural dyes and the fibre is silk.

Some of these will be available in the shop to buy in due course.

Remaining Grey

I am continuing to work on the grey pieces and they are continuing to take shape. I have decided to title the group as Fade since each piece is becoming progressively lighter as a passing reference to the title of the exhibition which is 6 Shades of Grey. It is also a reference to my need to move on from leaf printing and return to intensive handstitch. Here are a few details from the story so far.


Harrogate 

Spent a very busy few days demonstrating at The Knitting and Stitching Show at Harrogate. Day 1 was focussed on Ecoprinting on fabric. Day 2 was spent in collaboration with Alison Hulme and screen printing with natural dyes. These are some of Alison’s
