Amillie was five yesterday and bless her, she had fallen over a few days earlier and scraped the skin on her nose and forehead....it looked so sore but she was definitely a brave little princess.
Then a few weeks ago Master Seb celebrated his 2nd birthday.
In between all the celebrations, I have been working really hard on all my college stuff as I knew that I had to get quite a bit done before the trip to Paris.
I have been printing fabric.
Then hand painting with Procion Dyes.
Trying out the art of fabric manipulation. All these pieces started out as one square piece of fabric with a grid of dots marked on it and you simply join the dots in a variety of patterns.....it's absolutely fascinating.
I've been rusting fabric!
Boiling buttons....wrapped and tied in organza......now that is a really cool technique!
Playing with Xpanda Print, Lutrador and Brusho Powders......
.......it's all been quite a lot of work but so much fun too and then these babies arrived........even more yumminess and I am extremely ashamed to say that I have not had a chance to play with them yet. You can imagine just how frustrating that is!!
Well, that's me for today...I have a suitcase to pack.
