So impressed

So impressed with my family and their magpie skills.. My husband managed to find this beautiful silk log cabin for me on his travels and my daughter a wool crazy quilt. They want me to cut them up and start making but I think I will just admire them whole for a while!

Some tiny collages made today specifically for cards.

Here are some pictures to give you a flavour of what the students on today's workshop were trying to achieve. They were working in a textile collage style in response to a Winifred Nicholson pairing and these pictures are very much of unfinished work but some lovely pieces emerging.

I am starting to do a series of collages around an image transfer  of a very serious looking cat. This cat has been pinned to the noticeboard in my kitchen for many years and I thought it was time to share this delightful image around a bit. Here is the first collage I have made using him and which is available now on ETSY and also a picture of my kitchen noticeboard which I agree is a bit chaotic but isn't everybody's?

Red Flowers

Just refilled my Etsy shop. This is the first time I have put one of these red flower collages in to the shop.
