after procrastinating for weeks, I got round to tying buttons into the small red glove. No idea why it took me so long, it’s not difficult. She will go in the washing machine tomorrow, and then I will find out if she can stand up by herself. (Anthropomorphise things? Moi?)
Sampling has continued.
1. Wool City DK, originally from the late lamented Texere, but now available form Airedale Yarns. (And am I glad I Googled for that link, they seem to have expanded their range. Paper yarn anyone?) and;
2. Twilley’s Bubbly, at least 40 years old, bought in a charity shop, and now available on EBay and Etsy. Fortunately I have lost my credit card so I cannot replenish my stock.
These are not samples, but preparation for the ‘make something out of junk mail’ prompt from ‘Make Something Every Day’. I painted them with emulsion paint (seems to cover better than gesso and, as it was a left over can, the price was right.) Then I added Brusho, using a method I call Pollocking – spread paint splashily on the first sheet, put the next sheet on top, paint that, add the next one – and so on. Two sides painted for the price of one and lots of unpredictable colour combinations. These will become a book in due course.
