Circles of Rain

Girl on a box. Drawn on left over papier mâché sail from a large boat the children made at school. It has a lovely rough texture.

Collage/drawing/inking/embossing picture of, would you believe, Frida Kahlo, who happened to be staring at me from the cover of a magazine, with the caption ‘Selfie’. I was very extravagant and bought myself an embossing and die cutting machine and am now surrounded by pieces of embossed or cut paper which need using up!

Bee Quilt

The material has been hand dyed with turmeric, tea and onions skins. Then hand printed with lino cuts to represent the larvae, workers, drones and the single queen bee. The quilt was then then pieced, quilted and bound by hand.

The bees are arranged in a rough imitation of the structure of a hive: the queen is surrounded by workers, each drone and larvae are attended by their own workers, while others form a circle to represent a “bee dance” and some stand guard at the entrance to the hive.

Journal covers front and back. Trying out my new Xyron gluing machine. A contraption that puts edge to edge glue on something as you wind it through. Quite fun. Good for intricate things, fabric and ribbon.
