TIME

"But what minutes! Count them by sensation, and not by calendars, and each moment is a day."
~Benjamin Disraeli




Time certainly does pass by very quickly, its been a long time between posts.
It seems I have had one of those unintentional little breaks.

In these last few weeks I have been a busy little bee in the studio, the kids and I were also lucky enough to have a week in Queensland, it was glorious spending time in the ocean and being shone on by the warm sun.

I have posted here, photos of some eco- printing I did before going to QLD.
All credit for this method goes to the extremely talented and very inspiring India Flint .

I made a felt scarf with merino wool and silk and then laid Eucalyptus leaves on top.

Then the whole lot was rolled bundled and tied before being put in the steamer for a couple of hours.

The leaves give amazing colours and patterns.

I am looking forward to seeing what everyone has been up to!

BTW I'm very interested in doing a felting workshop with you sometime, when you run them again.
