More Inspiration

This is London calling!

We are presently with The Middle One and her partner, living amongst chaos as they've got the builders in and the place is covered in dust sheets and dust with workmen swarming all over the house.  You can read more about their building exploits here.

The Middle One paints some amazing pictures and they really are inspiring.

No 1

Liberated strings perhaps? 

No 2

Close up

I love this one.

How about using the triangle or the square and doing an Amish style quilt, working outwards using different colours?

No fabric sourcing or purchases yet, but I did buy this book yesterday.  Loads of inspration!

Will post again when we get home as I think this our last day with access to the internet.

More soon.

Beautiful Batiks

Was at the sewing machine all afternoon yesterday.

It's getting bigger by the day and I'm cutting more strips.  I'm thinking of doing a Freddy Moran and filling in with black and white to rest the eye.  It depends on how big it gets!

A lot of these fabrics came from Julie and Wanda sent me a few strips from  her precious batik stash.  It's still breaking my heart as batiks are scarce in France.

Hope I manage to find some in the UK.

Another kitty photo.

I reckon they'll be out of their cage by the end of today!

More soon.
