I did start a journal page with this week's PDCC colours but some extra colours crept in when a blue butterfly wanted to take part!
Then, following a bit of blog hopping this morning, I decided to get out my needle felting after seeing Jackie's wonderful pieces over at Dog Daisy Chains. Jackie's base fabric is wet felted but I don't often have the patience for that and got out a few scraps of wool and fabric and my trusty embellisher.
The images were inspired by some patterns in my V&A fifties patterns book...
Jackie's work had really made me think of Angie Lewin's prints, jam packed full of imagery and texture.
Virago have recently republished some modern classics and as one was in an Angie Lewin print I had to read it! I enjoyed it actually. It was written in the 1920s and it turns out I own a book by this author - it's in my nice second hand books to recycle pile, or it was, I'm now intending to read it lol!
So, a happy hour 'dumpfing', as Twiglet would say :) I'm not sure yet what this piece will become part of yet, but that's ok, it's purpose will appear at some point!
