I have been away from my crafting for a week, so I now hope to dive back in and come up with a picture for Ruth's Studio Chaos blog. Or should I really be aiming to keep my work station tidy in reality?!
I like the idea of stitch families. Sounds very cosy.
Today I did a bit of repurposing (aka mopping up a failed project). I had tried out using a sort of lattice bottle protection sleeve as a resist but didn’t poke enough wool into the gaps so had ended up with, well, something else. It’s been kicking about for a while so I decided to buy some air plants and tuck one into one of the little pockets. I rather liked it and as I’d bought a batch of 6 air plants online I made up a couple of other ones as well. I think I’ll glue them onto white box canvases so they can go on a wall.
Quite satisfying to get a useful thing out of something that was sort of in the way. I also have a photo canvas that didn’t work out and one more air plant so I might see if I can make a it or felt to marry them together.
The air plants in felt are wonderful. It looks like it was planned that way all along
I think there’s a joke to be had there about pulling the wool over people’s eyes but I can’t quite get to it! At some point I’ll have a go at the original idea of the lattice resist but it’s nice on this occasion to have a happy accident. The air plants are loving the damp felt - I don’t want to break it to them that things won’t always be this moist.
