It’s been very hot in the UK over the last few weeks (yes really!).  It’s been a bit too hot for weaving with wool. Today it’s been cooler so I got my pegloom out. Here is my work in progress.

I’ve been working on these lincocuts, inspired by Picasso.

At first I started by simplifying one of Picasso’s pieces, then worked without looking at the prints, having been inspired by the style.

Prints coming soon …

I’m very pleased with these raku fired ceramic buttons. Now to decide which garment to sew them on to!

Left - made by rolling clay onto a rubber car mat.  Top right - clay rolled onto a coffee sack.  Bottom - pattern made with a knife.

I love crafting outdoors! I did some stitching on a roof terrace on Margate. Fabulous views!

Here you can see a bird helping itself to some red yarn from one of my outdoor weavings. The bird used it to line a nesting box attached to one of the trees in the garden.
