I had a phone call at the beginning of the week requesting more of my brooches for the gallery in Leamington so I have been busy making these.
They wanted them as extra stock for Christmas.
This has given me an incentive to get some more work completed.
Next week I'm planning a visit to the Knitting & Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace, first time I have been to the London show in years!
I'm so looking forward to seeing all the amazing art textiles in one place and I'm hoping to take photo's to share with you.
Then of course there is all the different varieties of fibers and threads, I can be overwhelmed by the choice and the book stalls full of textile books, which I know will tempt me.
I have been working with year 8 students this week in textiles and we were experimenting with batik.
This is a sample I made to illustrate the technique, we had great fun creating patterns and they will then use their samples to decorate masks.
Another busy week, so I'm looking forward to a rest at the weekend, but it will include some sewing!
I must say before I go, thank you very much for all your kind comments.x
