(These are actually Thursday Finds.......but I don't think anyone will notice)
Photo altered in PSE using two layers of Kim's texture 'Coolgrunge'.
Beautiful bluebells from my garden plus a vintage book (Dante's 'Ad Astra') gifted to me by a lovely new friend.
I had a wonderful day yesterday with Maggi Birchenough, Julie Mackinder and a group of her friends.
We went to see the new exhibition of work by The Textile Study Group at The Beetroot Tree Gallery near where I live. We also managed coffee at the Cachepot vintage tea rooms, lunch at Anderson's delicatessen and a rummage in Peartree Yard craft emporium, That's what I call a packed day! :-)
By way of a thank you, Wendy gave me a vintage book I'd admired in Peartree Yard....its very special and I can't wait to use it in my projects.
On the subject of books......I bought Alysn Midgelow-Marsden's new book this week.....
here. The lucky lady now lives in New Zealand, but she visits regularly to teach workshops over here.
Finally......have all you iPhone/iPad users out there discovered Waterlogue app yet? I love it!!!
It's good to post on Instagram too and tag your photos to the Waterlogue link there.
Here are a few of my recent creations.....forgive me if you're an Instagram friend, I know you've already seen them ;-)
Here's the bluebell/book photo 'waterlogued'.
My blue muscari and pansies.
A cat we spotted in the churchyard at Edensor...plus my gorgeous white muscari.
And me!......Looking at you :-)
(Well actually I was looking to see if I'd set the timer right on my iPhone)
Love the way the app has broken up my garden into patterns.....
