I had a look at my squares from last March - I'd drawn a rather forshortened seedhead - see there on the 3rd row
scribbled a couple more & stitched one on some greeney fabric & black velvet with lots of beeds
I'm so inspired by Cas Holmes that I had to buy her book 'the found object in textile art' - I've looked at a few pages & just feel I've arrived.
I'm a little fed up of buying books site unseen - the price of living up here but one worth paying - so I decided to wait to buy it until Lesley & I went on an expedition to Creative Stitches at the SECC in Glasgow, well worth the wait. We left at 7.30 am & got back at 9pm ish with 4 hours wandering around inbetween being heavily inspired. Inspiration overload but I'll try & compile a list of who most caught my attention there later.
Even tho Lesley shared the driving I'm pretty tired so I haven't finished the stitching yet, but I think I feel this little stitched collage is getting somewhere.
I also love the seedheads of Angie Lewin & just adore Caroline's. Such generous inspiration out there!
