we've had another lurch towards winter this week - it's grey and drizzly outside and chilly enough to wear three layers of woollies. w and i are keeping our chests warm inside as we brew related virus lurgies of the sore throat, croupy cough kind. so not a day for manic creativity but i have been pottering around sorting things out on the sewing table
starting some random shibori - crochet cotton on muslin - that will make it into the cloque vat of caustic soda at some point over the weekend
thinking about what to do with this amazing fabric i found at the fabric shop in brunswick street the other week. it's linen with drops of resin - i'm thinking of seeing what happens when i paint it with henna
and this sequinned extravaganza is amazing in a very different way - it's eye-poppingly shiny and blue - i saw it in gj's last week when i was finding envy/jealousy fabrics and couldn't resist it - i think it will be a sea element in a future burnt quilt.
