First though, here is the craziness of last week in pictures (but not including the train'n'tram trip to the Big Blue scandinavian emporium of white picture frames and the "interesting" journey home again with three Big Blue Bags in a heat wave...)
Stitching a new sort of doodle on a piece of embellished felt
Foiling a huge piece of painted Bondaweb and felt, ready for sari silk strips. Note that the kitchen worktop is not man enough for the job, so I've now moved onto the dining room table ...
Stitching said huge piece of foiled sari silk strips.
The complete Slater, put to good use sticking down my book covers.
Sari silk bead production line
Picture/gift bag production line
The beginnings of a big foiled bit of velvet (the random one I mentioned last time)
Now with foil
and now with stitch
to be turned into book covers, a bit like this one (sorry for bad pic). Glad I did these, turned out to be popular! I also did a demo of this technique on the stand, and lots of people came to watch, even the "serious" oil/acrylic painting types over the way!
My lovely huge corner stand at Art Trail. Boy, was there Much Faffing, I've never taken so long to put up a display before. Pleased with my sticks!
But just LOOK what I woke up to on Sunday. It's Tuesday evening and I still can't face it! Guess what I'll be doing tomorrow...
