on a mission to pastures new to check out a few things,Exciting.. can't say more ...
except l'm stuck with the old prone to crash PC, tempermental ( no not spelt wrongly)
un user friendly..l had a great day out today (more tomorrow)l borrowed my technical helpers camera , technical help might return at the weekend with the come and go laptop, we might even post a post!..but yesterday was a different story..l went to the excel exhibition centre for a mooch about at the stitch and creative craft show. so little to see..so many unrelated to craft stalls , a real disappointment . l went some years ago and it had changed so much..l went for the afternoon/eve as it was closing late at 7.30pm..well at 4.00pm l rang and said Please come and get me!!
lt wouldn't normally be hard to find something interesting to do or see..but as l did another lap of the stalls l felt l was on first name terms with the exhibitors!these things are usually mad packed with people and you can't get near a stall.. business was not good..l had gone hoping to find out more about applying pictures to fabric and other stuff..No joy there! ha huh l spoke to the rep from the embroidery guild she was helpful and said where l could order it from! where, it turned out, l ordered cloth paper scissors from the other week! what a small world..

l have also been playing with fabric and have partly finished a picture!
for quite some time l have been in a fog /mist my brain not functioning ,
along with my hands and other bits,so l had lots of ideas but
not been able to get my head around it ,and make anything .
Everything was out on the table and l would fiddle as l passed
BUT this Tuesday the fog lifted!
PLANES WERE LANDING.. WORK STARTED!
Not ,might l add on the pile of ironing and the other to do stuff!! l had a whole day of doing what l wanted because l could! and as l don't work you might find that to hard to understand! all the time in the world! a lot of working people would love this time at home,but if your not functioning properly the novelty wears off ,Quickly!l love the work found at http://www.hensteethart.blogspot.com/ and http://www.janetbolton.com/ ,applique,stitching and using printed fabric and vintage finds ..so l have been fiddling.
l am waiting for my copy of Cloth paper and scissors ..hens teeth has an article in there,l managed to order a copy without taking out a subscription . l'm hoping for more ideas and tips ..l used Lazertran this week ,but l'm not sure if this is the best you can use,l can print onto any fabric with it...oh for someone who didn't have much to say l sure said a lot..
l cant wait for another clear day!
