As you can see, chaos reigns on my worktable which was beautifully tidy a few weeks ago.
I haven't got very far with my fabric book of memories of my grandmother, but here are the four pages so far completed. I am not sure I like the handwritten text and may have to come up with an alternative. It is so hard to keep the fabric smooth and write at the same time.
I have been very busy working on the garden which is slowly returning to a respectable state. By the end of the day I am too tired to concentrate so have sometimes amused myself by experimenting with little collages.
They are all made on khadi paper about 5 inches square.
I have so many bits and pieces and am amazed at what I have kept, but much of it has been useful in putting these together.
They are really tottering baby steps in collage - I have probably broken all the rules, and I don't even know if there are any to break.
Some have worked better than others. I am not sure about the one above, but do like the last one.
I must get back to Granny's book before I have another book to work on. At the beginning of September I am treating myself to one of Frances Pickering's weekend workshops. This year's theme is Town or Country - I have chosen Country. Already I have too many ideas buzzing round in my head. I think I might work on paper this time as I want to make myself do more drawing - scary! But who knows - by the time I have listened to Frances' opening talk I might change my mind completely.
