Just for fun I've made two draught excluders
Manworm and ladyfox
Not everyones choice of draught control, but it is mine.
They do make me jump as they lie, prostrate, by the door

One to think about.
A sample reduced down to colour and texture through stitch, with just the occasional naive embroidered shape.
I may keep it, I may not. See what I think about it tomorrow
Just trying out a colourway variation this morning
Two wonderful shots of inspiration happened today, both of which will have to go in the queue as each need thought , ground work and preparation.
One is combining the above idea with another technique and the other far superior was from my pal Pat

I worked this fabric this afternoon while I was waiting for inspiration to complete the last image posted.
I finished this piece but as no 'flash' has materialised perhaps the other piece is finished too.

Today's piece with an African influence me thinks. All the pieces together, in this series, look WILD.
I'm spreading them out, on the floor, to see if I want the impact of them altogether or whether to hang them singularly, like art pieces in a gallery...
Today the second of the two 'look-books' I have put together arrived ,thud, through the letterbox.
I'm compiling these so that people can see, at a glance, what I do.
It also tells me what I do ....
