I went back to move forward?
I looked at getting involved in textiles again?
I stopped thinking so much and got on with it?
I stopped asking what if and told you what I was talking about!!!
I told you in this post that I spent 2 days with Hilary Beattie working with fabric and paper. I have had so many ideas flitting about my brain since then that I'm quite worn out. Although random other things have also had an influence.
When I got back from the workshop with my 4 inch squares
Not with this actual design but with the idea of small bejewelled bits. Actually bejewelled is totally the wrong word but I can't think of a description at the moment.
Many years ago I did a Summer Workshop with the Pembrokeshire Embroiderer's Guild with Hilary Bower as the tutor. I ended up with this which hangs on our lounge wall. The map itself is 18 inches by 15 inches.
I did another workshop at the NEC some years ago with Erika Carter and one of the finished pieces was this 8.5 inch square.
Since then I've dabbled in all sorts of other arty things including scrapbooking and art journalling. And of course I love to make mini-books.
So what do I mean by going back to move forward? I'm thinking about returning to using fabric and paper in mixed media somethings. Although I have no idea what the somethings are! I did a four year (part time) creative embroidery course and a couple of years afterwards just stopped. And I love taking photos so maybe I can incorporate those as well.
So maybe now is the time to pick these things back up again. Watch this space to see what happens!
Thanks for stopping by.
