Out and About

Some weeks I may only go out of the house to the hairdressers or church.  But this week I not only did those two things I also got out and about elsewhere.  

First I went to a Studio Day at Littleheath Barn Studio.  On these days each person takes their own pieces along to work on with the added benefit of being able to have input from Liske as well as the other attendees.

Do you remember these collages from last post?

Well, this is what they look like now after the time I spent at Littleheath.

I don't usually post photos of me.  However Liske took this for me as I need a photo of me working for some publicity for the Creative Textile Studio at Festival of Quilts next year.

On Wednesday I was invited to talk about my work at the Lichfield Textile and Stitch Group.  The ladies were most welcoming.   I put out all my work in themes - Florida, Venice, Canals and Others.  I left all my hangings rolled up and unrolled them one at a time as I talked about the process.


I also took sketchbooks and workbooks that support the textile pieces.

I explained some of the techniques I use including how to do breakdown printing and how to use a Thermofax screen.

At the end everyone was invited to come and look at my work.  I was very happy for the work to be touched.

I had a lovely time.  And I was very pleased that I didn't get held up driving home.

Thanks for joining me today.
