I’m still vaguely irritated about not being able to finish the french knot project so have been knitting socks instead and trying not to think about how fast I seem to be hurtling towards Christmas. Then I realised it was Guild this Saturday; time for the Travelling Books to set off on their third round and I still hadn’t done mine. I’m going to use some of the printing I did at Chris Gray’s workshop in the summer and it’s got this far:
Not a single stitch in it. Oops. Guess what I need to do when I finish writing this…
But first I thought I’d share some of the pages that other people have stitched for me on the theme of The Sea.
Pam’s beach huts on a pieced patchwork background:
Lorna’s paper string technique:
Eilleen’s ‘Water Babies’ inspired underwater scene:
Helen’s Rod Stewart ‘Sailing’ ships against a textured painted fabric background.
Pauline’s impression of the Barrier Reef from a recent visit. The background is transfer printed using wrapping paper ironed onto calico!
Mary gave me this delicious looking 3D crab.
And finally Debbie interpreted one of her lovely photos taken at Flamborough Head in East Yorkshire in layers of fabric and stitch.
They are all delightful – thanks everyone!
