This week, a little 'play', was in order, before I buckle down
to the real world. Next Monday afternoon, I have a job interview.
On Tuesday, I had my monthly,
J.A.M. (initials of members) session.
We are a small group of like-minded friends,
who meet up once a month to exchange, news, ideas
and inspiration. This month, we had a trip out to Otley.
It was a lovely day, as you can see.
This photo was taken from the window of Adelaide Walker,
which was our first, port of call. It is an old mill, which has been
repurposed, into offices and small businesses.
It sells, felting and spinning supplies
(Annette, is a felt maker).
There was lots of temptations.....
It was difficult but I resisted.
Then we hit the town. No Charity Shop was safe.
I picked up this little number, where everything was 99p.
Great for my interview, or that's what I told myself.
Then it was off for a bite to eat and home.
A great day out!
The rest of the week has been spent, in my workroom, playing.
I have been .....
Experimenting! Making a grid, for a new textile piece.
A way of incorporating text, into my work.
I used free machine embroidery over hessian and paper.
The white stabiliser disolves in water.
Will see what happens, when it dries!!
Resurrecting an old project.
Really comfy sweater, that I have made before but worn out.
Got a bit bored with the knittiing, as it's so plain but
it's perfect for a fireside project (unlike the shawl).
The edging is sarisilk and the main body grey.
It's been on the needles for about 2 years at least.
About time I finished it.
Outside, it has rained but mostly at night.
We have had lots of
pink fluffy clouds.
Lastly, I'm very excited! Have started a Twitter
wordplay 'thing', with Ali from Random-Wooliness.
I love words. It's great to find someone with a fellow feeling.
Well, better get going.
Wherever you are.
Hope you get some playtime in, this weekend.
