my favourite basket! made from old electric cords! Don't we have a lot of them lying around! I just hate to think of them all in landfill!
I'm having a bit of a thing about my grandfathers fighting in WW1. Must have something to do with RUSSIA
I love teaching watercolor, hand mending, fitting your dress to you, sewing, quilting, paper making, and making do-extending the use of clothing, and household items.
STITCH IT. Mark-making is my thing! I make marks on hand-made paper, canvas, fabric, felt, and tea bags, with anything from thread, paint, pastels, and anything else that leaves a mark.
A sunny day at the beach in watercolour! Paint is immediate and I love that! I like to paint in watercolour and oil paint, or draw with pastels or charcoal.
I had a fun time painting these black sneakers! Something different for a fundraiser. I love the use of the line used like stitching because my favourite thing at the moment is DO IT!
