Not a very original container, but the contents are unusual. Stitched shells by my friend Fay, and also the real thing. Spotted on Saturday. Full details of the Weekly photo challenge can be found here. Just Snaps has a different interpretation.
Rough/smooth, hard/soft, whichever way you look at it there’s a lot to be found in contrasts. Full details of the challenge can be found here and Just Snaps is also up and running. Fancy a 2 month blogging challenge? Find out more here.
This week’s Photo Challenge is ‘Room’. If the family see this they will laugh raucously, I’m sure, because I never have enough. I can fill a space before it is vacated! However, the one place I always ensure that I leave PLENTY of room is in the dyebath!
The fabric needs room to move in the fixing solution. Below are the results of part of the above collection
Incidently, if anyone is near South Wales and is interested in learning a little about dyeing, I’m teaching a day workshop on 14th June at Busy Bees Patchwork in Newport. There are a couple of places left, if you are interested email Busy Bees directly for details. It’s very good value and, apart from having fun, you will learn that it’s simple and logical to create colour on fabric.
Maybe this is a bit of a cheat! Earlier this week we visited a local attraction with our grandchildren. The youngest spotted the fluffy ram and immediately climbed on. This was to the delight of the nearby volunteer who announced that it had only just been received and placed there minutes ago until its permanent resting place was prepared. Five minutes later we passed the spot again and it had gone!
There is nothing better than viewing the world through the eyes of children, so a trip to a Children’s Zoo was a pleasure. Of all the animals and birds that we saw these little chaps were the firm favourite!
And as you can see (top right) one of the little kids was definitely ‘on top’ of the world!
