but by the time I’d:
- got up late because of an insomniac night
- been to Sainsbury's
- painted a piece of fabric to make a ring binder cover –
- and then another bit to use up the left over paint
- dyed some T-shirts and tights to make an Upsy Daisy outfit
- and sorted out my stuff for college – yes, that is a tin of emulsion paint -
I couldn’t have picked up a pencil.
Before anyone tells me – I know Upsy Daisy doesn't wear pink tops and tights – but I only realised that after I’d bought the dye. Mrs Cheddar had the genius idea of stamping the daisies, and I think I have some yellow fabric paint and a daisy stamp – so that’s the next step. And one of these, in pink and white – also Mrs C’s idea.
Of course, I realised today that Sainsbury’s sell UD outfits – but where's the fun in that?
Getting ready for college reminded me of the way the bags we took for C&G gradually, over the four years, got bigger – and bigger – and bigger.
Week 3 of the degree and I'm already up to my two biggest bags. Strictly speaking the sewing machine [which is in the left hand bag] isn’t compulsory, but I would still need another bag for all the things which are insulating the machine inside the bag …
On a more restful note – this is finished. The first bit of stitching for the degree. Nothing official, just playing with the results of the printing session.
Mmm – I wonder what makes a life-long agnostic embroider a Madonna and child? Perhaps I think I need help?
Here’s another sketchbook page you’ve seen before, but now with the stencil added – or, strictly speaking, the reverse of the stencil. One day I’ll get back to doing something with that idea …
