Kezzy is home, she has had a great time, night-time exercises, shooting and for leisure, a trip to the pictures to see the new Alice and Wonderland film and to The Royal Airforce museum in London. Loads of wet and dirty washing to keep me busy!

Tomorrow, Kezzy is home from her week away with the ATC's. Off to visit Margaret first thing to deliver my Round Robin Challenge fabric.

As you can see I have posted my devore sample- this is how it was made:-
The viscose velvet was taped to the table right side to the table. The devore paste was then used to draw the pattern over the back of the fabric, (words have to be written in reverse).
Left to dry. When completely dry, using a hot iron, iron the back of the fabric. Wash and dry. Dye. I used raspberry and mid blue. The devore fluid flowed quite quickly and to get better control next time, I need to keep the bottle more upright.
This evening I have made this very large tag for my daughters wedding anniversary using my new Paper Artsy stamps.
I enjoyed the fashion show even though I wouldn't have been able to wear anything that was being modelled, some very talented students.
Sixties. So much to look at in this piece, very clever!
I visited all the other exhibitions, but can't post any pictures as I said to theexhibitors that all my photo's would be for personal use only-sorry!
It is the first time that I have been to this show and because there were three shows under the one roof I found PLENTY to see, not leaving until the show closed at 5pm.

Nothing creative to show as I have been fighting a chest infection the last couple of days. Last night I gave in and got an appointment for late this evening. I then had to go half way to Southend to find the night chemist to get all my medications as the doc said I HAD to start it tonight. I am off to bed with a hot chocolate and hopefully I will be doing something creative tomorrow night.

Di's fabric -Deb
The next stage is quilting, I will post photo's when my fabric comes from Deb
The Midsummer- Night's Dream angel was well received today, I ended up staying at the 'do' a lot longer than I had planned.;0)
I am now trying to find some inspiration for my wall hanging that I have to make for our exhibition in September, I am reading articles and looking at images at the moment for the 60's and 70's

Kezzy had to make a texture collage for her art GCSE, so we went round the house and garden and she took quite a lot of photo's which I then showed her how to make into a collage with Flickr.

On Monday I have to email the Round Robin gang to let them know where they have to send their fabric too for the next step of the Challenge.

This evening has been spent getting ready for work tomorrow:0( and naming up and collating the EG Annual Review to hand out tomorrow night. With over 80 members, who like their 'post' in alphabetical order, it takes quite a bit of time.
Just time to read a few blogs before bed

Then up early again on Sunday as I am driving to Buckingham to see my mother(about a two hour drive, M25 permitting)
Monday Kezzy has an appointment at the hospital- a pre-op assessment for her operation next month on her teeth, then Monday night is EG and we have Mary Sleigh coming to our Branch.
Nothing more to show yet for my Round Robin, I am really enjoying doing the research on the America's, I shall hope to do something on Tuesday towards making my cloth.

Time to think about 'America's' now for the Round Robin.

Hubby was only supposed to be in the minor op dept an hour, but due to running late and the doctor being called away we were there three hours. At least I was able to make good use of my time!
Sunday, 7 March 2010
Trying to make up my mind what part of the America's to use for my inspiration for my piece of cloth that I have to make for the Round Robin. I am thinking Peru and the Nazca people. I will ponder a bit more. The others in the Round Robin don't seem to have started on their cloth yet either!
