Today I am inspired by
:: Rob Ryans paper cuts. Totally amazed at the beauty and detail in his work. Next trip to London will involve a visit to his shop.
:: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society Novel by Mary Ann Shaffer reccommended by my friend.
:: Dying fabric. As with MJ I want to use 'real nappies' on baby, however some of MJs terry squares were looking a bit tired and worn so I had a go at dying them green! They turned out a bit darker than I had imagined but I'm still happy with them. Although I am disappointed with myself for using a chemical dye and not thinking to research using natural dyes first. Yesterday at 'Craft and Coffee' a friend showed me some wool she has just dyed using turmeric, red onion skins and tea. The results were stunning and totally inspiring. I'm sure there are lots more things I can dye so I will have to be a bit more creative next time and research natural dyes first.
:: My clothes line of green nappies reminded me of the film 'I capture the castle' which is one of my favourites. I really want to watch it again soon.
