A blog about making art and other things using cloth, paper, paint, colour, stitch, and all sorts of exciting techniques, some of which I'm sure I still have to discover! I hope that the joy all this gives me is visible in what you can see here.

November JQ, and some gallery pieces.

Here is my JQ for November, and I've called it 'Trapped Button' This group of four JQ's has to have a button/buttons included somewhere. It is inspired by yet another of my Dungeness photos, this time of the inside of a very weather worn and derelict Fisherman's shed. There are plenty of them on this part of the Kent coast. I've used self dyed fabrics, some black sheer, vegetable netting, and just a whisper of inktense pencil on the background. I also zig-zagged some black wool around the broken planks of the shed wall, free machine and hand stitch.

The above three images are my latest pieces to make a set of four. The fourth one can be seen in my previous post. They are all now for sale in a local gallery, so fingers crossed that they will sell.

That's it for now folks, enjoy the fireworks and November 5th celebrations!!
