Invitation and Fabric beads
Above is the official invitation to our exhibition here. We'd love to see you all, I'm amazed at how prolific Patsy is with her work, every time I see her she has more wonderful show and tell. I'm in panic mode now, trying to make sure I get everything done.
This is a huge ball of cotton jersey fabric that I bought at a garden centre of all places. They were selling it to tie up plants to stakes. Well, never being one to use something for it's original purpose I had to buy it. I love stripes. I didn't know what I would use it for, then I remembered years ago I used to make fabric beads. Guess what the garden tie now is used for. I became so engrossed in the bead making, I was finding all sorts of fabric scraps, buttons and trims to use. I now have enough for three necklaces. I see endless possibilities for decorating these humble little beads. I'm going to make some from my hand decorated fabrics too.
Finally take a look at Seth's blog, he has the Pulse happening again, where he asks artists questions about their art and has some wonderful photos of people's collections. Workspaces are coming up soon. It's well worth a visit. Thanks again Seth.
