There are ideas here, but the experimentation all seems a little haphazard, I feel I need a process or perhaps certain techniques to help pin my work down. Questions, that's what I've got lots of!

Using my squeegee on the piece above to use up excess binder - waste not want not. And below are some results from the break down printing technique (see the committed cloth link to the right for more info on this)

I have also developed some new concertina books with my print designs on them...
You can see them for real at the the art market at Castle Howard on Bank Holiday Monday, or at HOST in September.

Quite pleased with the outcome, but need to find away to make the stitching at the end look nice and neat - any thoughts??

Just some simple screen printing with a stencil - ready for stitching onto. - Feels good to be getting my hands dirty :)

He touched a little on something I discussed with Rozanne Hawksley last week and this made me feel slightly better about getting lost on my journey through the MA. He said that sometimes you know that something means something to you but that you don't know what it is yet - it hasn't revealed itself to you, but the devil is in the detail. Rozanne made a comment that she felt that I had a lot things locked up inside and that I needed to take a peek through the keyhole. Closer observation and some focus perhaps.
The work in Men of Cloth is defintely worth a visist.
Then yesterday evening Dionne Swift invited me up to a talk in Leyburn she was giving on Artists Promotion. This was very informative and useful in preparing me for all the knit and stitch shows I will be at this year. The group hada good discussion about the ups and downs of exhibiting and we all left with a comprehensive list from Dionne to refer to.
So tomorrow I will be talking at at the Harrogate Embroiderers Guild all about my work and have been busy getting ready, packing up work and sorting out a power point presentation which I couldn't have done without the loan of a very nice new LCD projector - thank you Dionne :) x

Rozanne was also one of the four speakers we had organised to come and talk about their work and was highly entertaining, as was Tabitha Moses, Philippa Prinsloo and Jill Townsley. It was a superb afternoon.
Now I am about to set off for my sisters wedding this weekend, yipee! I am having a very exciting week :) x

They are a collection of inks and graphite on paper. Not sure whether I will translate these into stitch yet? I still need a definite focus for the Diploma Stage for the MA, so that is the next issue to resolve.

Anyway - cracking on with a bit more practical stuff over the next few days before the presentation next week, so will upload some images of that soon. Anything to escape the madness that is the eurovision singing contest!

There is less of a focus on cultivating lovely hand writing now that we have computers as a way of presenting the written word in a neat and tidy way. My own handwriting is a rather unattractive spider like scrawl and I wish it was more like the images below.
