I have joined Yahoo ATC swap group and my first swap is a recycle theme. I sandwiched threads between pieces of a plastic bag and ironed them (using baking parchment)then stitched on top. The little squares are bits of Xmas wrap that I couldn't bear to throw away..........like everything else that i won't throw away !!! the pinky squarea are threads trapped in dissolvable solufleece. Most of the threads are recycled either bought in charity shops or off ebay.
Come and visit my other blog ArtyMaker..I have been lucky enough, along with 8 other Textile artists to take part in The Enliven Project....a project organised by Eastleigh Borough Council....which means that we are working as artists in residence in local Charity shops ...we will create an outfit out of goodies we find in our allocated shop which will be put on display for a month. The outfit will then be featured in the Eastleigh music Festival weekend in July
Here is the facebook page ..with lots of pics .....
I have been a Textile artist all my life but only been trying to make a living from it since I was made redundant from my teaching job last year. I am passionate about textiles and am privileged to share my skills with others.
Thanks for taking the time to have a glimpse at my world.
