postcard project continues with help

Please keep sending in your postcard creations, we love receiving them and adding them to the collection.
Two cards came today with a very flora and forna theme, not sure if they are from the same person or if serendipity is at play.

Another beautiful donation from Heather Anne.

Monday 18th September, the Textiles for Thought discussion group met at my house today and we sat around the dining table busying our hands whilst we talked. Many thanks to Liz Hewitt, Deborah Pawle, Patricia Brownen and Janet Clarke for their wonderful creative contribution while we discussed the range of exhibitions we'd seen over the summer.

Many thanks to Heather Anne for sending us this fabulous postcard.

Very excited to receive the first two postcards. Both very different and both wonderful.

We were pleased to see how many people took our postcards from the exhibition at 44AD last week and from the West Country Quilt and Textile show the weekend before. Many thanks to those who took them. We can't wait to see what you have done and including them into our next exhibition in Bampton.

and now in colour

I started with experimenting with textures and patterns on the sandblaster, added crochet in linen  and mohair threads, all in ecru. But I do love colour and after the summer workshop where discussions included an very interesting one about our individual confidence in the use of colour in our work I decided to quit ecru and use the colours I'd gathered at the workshop. This has bought me to knitting and crocheting colours and textures together. I hope to create a range of lengths for the exhibition, now I am considering how I will display them at 44AD.
