Grids, words and cotton reels

Have been up very early this morning and written down all the words spinning around in my head. Design development has been taken into two new printing screens this week. One from hand drawn grids - inspiration from the composition matrices (boxes of fonts!) and the other from lines of words. These will be for domestic interiors.

The other side of my collection is my textile art pieces and textile books. One small book will be wrapped around a cotton reel entitled The Embroiderer Meets the Press and you will have to wait and see once finished! There will also be another small linen book both encased in a box representing the "composition matrices".

We have a break for 2 weeks from college and my "to do" list is vast, but it is a good time to catch up with templates for embossing, research for files, fabrics and paper. Plus ............... to finish my dissertation to be handed in when we get back to college.

So it is busy but really exciting as well. Happy Easter.


  1. Really glad to hear you sound busy but happy! Good luck with the dissertation.

  2. With the "gift giving season" approaching like a runaway fright train I was recently reminded of the fact that fishing gifts can be a difficult thing to buy for people that are close to you for many reasons and the best fishing gifts can be all but impossible to determine in many instances. However, I have learned a tip that makes this process much easier for anyone who is interested is burying a fishing gift. fishing reels

  3. There is a lot of information out there concerning the best time to be on the water fishing. There are various "apps", books, and subscriptions that show you the most likely times that fish will be feeding, thus showing you the best fishing times. The problem with most of these solutions to determining the best fishing times is that they cost money, in some cases quite a lot of money. How To Get Fish Smell Out Of The House?
