Partial Success.

I have been trying out a new way of posting photos and this one was taken about 4 years ago.  I love the lacy effect that the nibbling insects have created in this dock leaf.

I used this as an experiment to see if I could post photos again but it isn't what I was looking for.  For some reason all the more recent photos which are on my camera don't seem to have been transferred onto the laptop.  All I have to do now is figure out why!

It is very remiss of me not to have posted for so long but I suppose I have nothing interesting to report or show you.  Life has swept me along and kept me busy and I am still plucking up the courage to draw something worthwhile.   What is new?   I am hoping it will be like a boil and suddenly burst and I can shout 'Eureka'!

See you shortly.

Well that leaf is certainly worth posting Heather, it is beautiful. I wonder how you could transfer this effect to your fantastic embroidery.

How nice to hear from you again! I understand the problems with getting photos on your computer. I have a camera that came with a wire to hook up between the camera and computer and I can transfer photos easily like that most of the time. I love that lacey leaf! It would be nice to use it as a stencil I would think.

Nothing wrong with ticking along Heather x

A beautiful leaf, it may be possible to create the same effect with soluble film and machine embroidery. As soon as I can drive again I will come down to see you. Don't worry I haven't been banned, I have to wait for four weeks after my op. It's driving me mad. No pun intended.
Hugs Wendy.

Hallo Ragged Old Blogger, so nice to see you are still about. I stopped blogging a couple of years ago because I'd had enough of it but I'm still creating. I've been doing some quilting for the past couple of years and now discovered bag making - not quilted totes but bags with frames and metal work and rivets and all sorts of different interfacings and waddings - great fun and lots to learn. Given my machine a huge challenge to get all the thick fabrics through! Hope you and yours are all well. Carolx
