Buzzing .......

I’m buzzing after spending the day with like minded 
people at the fabulous studio of textile artist

Ann Brooke’s textile art

The workshop was led by the very talented 
Viv Sliwka of Hens Teeth Art 
And I got to spend the day with friend Lyn who 
haven’t seen for ages. 

We were all given the same brief but every piece 
was so different 

Handstitched needlecases/fabric journals

Can’t stay I’ve got stitching to do.
Spending the day with people on the same wavelength 
as yourself is the best medicine around.
Roll on the next one.

What’s on your Workdesk

It’s my friend’s 50th birthday this week
so I made this little patchwork square and attached it
to a jute bag

Hope she likes it.

How’s your endorphins

I don’t know whether it’s the promise of 
British summer time around the corner
or whether I’m coming out of the fog 
I’ve been in for the past few months.

but I can feel the creative endorphins 
kicking in.

Ive been looking at the book bags that 
I made last year for some of my special books 

and I think I might make some more or maybe 
I’ll make some more crazy paving ribbon

Let’s hope that the sun will have his hat on soon 
and brighten us all up.
Happy weekend 
Lynn xx

What’s on Your Workdesk

Hello desk hoppers thanks for popping by.

While we had all the snow I’ve been busy stitching.
The tree is going to the Whitworth Gallery in Manchester.
It’s going to be part of a massive collection of stitched trees for a project by Textile Artist 

Hope that’s the end of the snow for this year.
Right off desk hopping over at Julia’s place.

Cat up a tree

My twig weaving from the weekend has turned into a 
Cat up a tree

Look what else you can do with twigs.
This picture isn’t mine but I once made a 
towel rail with a piece of driftwood I picked up on the beach in Abersoch, Wales.

Twigs, tree bark and wire collected on the 
moorland where I live.

Twigs are also useful for hanging your textile pieces from.

Hope this isn’t the start of another fetish

Twigs and wool

No I’m not making a slingshot 

I've been on a twig/branch weaving workshop with my Mum.

This could get addictive

But first I’ve got to do the shopping and maybe I'll
find a few more twigs along the way

Happy Monday readers
