Dye-work for green waves 21-1-15

Dye-work for green waves

The dye-work has begun for my new textile collage of waves. Here are both the paper onto which dyes were painted, and the fabric to which the dyes were transferred. There is a real shift in colours, and calculating this is always a challenge.

A Saltcellar Hat to keep me warm in my studio

In Porthleven last week I bought my new Studio Hat. This, together with black fur ski boots, is keeping me cosy. Unless it gets really cold, wearing many thermal layers is my answer to winter. I had great fun trying on hats, and for anyone finding themselves in Cornwall, do go to the Saltcellar Workshops. http://saltcellarhats.co.uk/Collections.html

The red anemones are flourishing beneath the ancient olive tree. Amazingly the last flower of the bunch I bought four weeks ago has just faded.
