Heatwave = sun = sun printing

We've been having heatwave conditions across the southern states of Australia. Yesterday was 41deg c here. Lots of sun means sun printing takes place, although the high temperatures usually mean strong northerly winds, which aren't always helpful when trying to anchor stencils onto fabric. Hot winds also mean bush fires, the dreaded part of summer. I hope all of our friends in Tassie are staying safe.




I use my own hand cut stencils and masks as well as commercial stencils.
These fabrics will be used in my journals. I cut them up and free motion stitch around the shapes, then add them to fabric pages or covers.

Thanks again to everyone who takes the time to visit and comment and also for the great response I've had to my Facebook page and to all of the likes. I truly appreciate each and everyone of you.

I'll also be teaching an on-line glass with the fabulous 21 Secrets group in April.

Bush fires must be terrifying - keep safe everyone.
Love your sun prints and I know they will light up the journals they go into.
I must have a look at your online course, though goodness knows I haven't the time or energy to take on anything else.

Amazing how even the most dire conditions can be turned to advantage. Stay cool Ro. It's quite pleasantly mild here in sunny QLD.

Awesome prints Ro. Thoughts are with the people suffering with bush fires in Aussie. I can't imagine the terror they cause. Keep safe.

Those sun prints look great Ro, now if you could swap a little of your heatwave for some of our torrential rain,life would be more pleasant for both of us.

Ro...are you out of the way of bush fires? It is sounding horrendous and the heat seems to be pumping up even more.
