MESSING AROUND CHALLENGE

Hello my lovelies. I hope you’re all have a very happy chocolate bunny infused Sunday. Sarah and I have both had a little chocolate today. It was delish.

So far, the bank holiday weekend has been pretty good. I did a few household chores as well as embellishing a couple of art journal pages yesterday and today. It’s funny that I seem to have grown a little more enthusiastic with every art journal page I work on.

Day 11 Bunny

Sarah has very kindly fished out all kinds of supplies she thinks I might be able to use. For example, gelli plate. I’m not sure how exactly I will use it yet but I have had a good little look online to see how others have played with it.

Now most of you already know that my preferred medium is fabric. I design and make quilts. I quilt said quilts either by machine and by hand. Now that I have been playing with all things paper crafty, I think I would like to use similar techniques with fabric. I have dabbled with fabric crafty art in the past but not for a long time. Some of the art journal pages I have produced could possibly be reproduced in fabric. With the current lockdown, I might just have enough time and enthusiasm left to dig out some calico and have a go. Most of what I produced in paper form is simple layering up. Surely, I can do the same in fabric form. Watch this space my friends. I think the time has come to teach an old dog a few new tricks. Google, YouTube and Pinterest are probably a great resource for what I’m thinking of attempting.

It’s been a good weekend so far. One more day left before things go back to regular lockdown. It seems like everyday is the same not matter what day it is these days. Does anyone else feel like this???

Well, I guess that my report for today. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly love doing. Until next time,

Let’s all keep on stitching and messing around with art supplies.

    After being touch with long absent friends by email and snail mail for many, we are now keeping in touch with our regular friends. For someone we meet for Saturday morning coffee, we ring up Friday afternoon or early evening, and pass the time of day , just as we would do on Saturday morning. And similarly through the week. It means when we think oh it’s Saturday, we should be meeting Margaret and wondering how she is, we think oh it’s Margaret’s coffee day. She said…. and discuss up to the moment ideas.
    It is important to keep up with all friends, young or old, so we are all still close friends at the end of this separation
