Hi Folks....sorry I haven't been around much since the start of the year....since going back to work, life has been hectic with home visits, looking after my parents and continuing my quest with my Etsy shop and making things to sell in it....I am loving making coiled rope bowls, and dyeing vast amounts of fabric and scarves with my indigo dye....just two weeks ago I spent an AMAZING 3 days with a master indigo dyer from Mali, West Africa.  His name is Aboubakar Fofana...and he has collaborated with Donna Karan and her fashion label, amongst was an absolute privelege for me to participate in his workshop.  I was able to purchase some lengths of 100%, hand woven organic cotton,Melvin by artisans in Mali.  With some of this, I hand dyes some graduated blues and created this cushion from some of the fabric.

Here is a link to my Etsy Shop if you would like to see some of the things I have for sale.....

Happy New Year

Hi everyone....a Happy New year to you all.  Well, after the fun I had participating in 7 Vignettes in December, I decided to give January a go also.  These are the first 4 days....the theme this month is Colour and the first days were Sparkle, yellow, blue and green.  I am having fun finding the appropriate colours around my home.  Needless to,say, I had very little difficulty finding blue things!!

Final 2 days of 7 Vignettes

The final two days of 7 Vignettes were "Shine" and "Monochrome"...I must admit, I found these two days the easiest probably because I already had ideas from when I first saw the list of themes...

And just to sum up the whole week....

7 Vignettes days 4 and 5

The themes for days four and five were "wish list" and "wrap it up".  I must admit, I really struggled with the wish list and posted my photo very late yesterday.  As for wrap it up, I had so many ideas and decided to do they all are

Child's Play

Day three of 7 Vignettes is Childs Play. I am trying to ensure a link with each day's vignette and am using a small Christmas Tree I bought last year to help me achieve this.  I have also popped some of my favourite miniatures under the tree along with a Rudolph a friend made.
