first. I have a little brooch to show you which I put together this week.
It was inspired by a recent video on Just hands on TV. i did not use the method shown in the video although my beading is very similar.
On a more subdued note, a few days ago was the fifth anniversary of the worst fires in Australia's history, which ravaged my home town, and I have started a piece of work informed by it.
I was inspired, by a couple of blogs, to do some free motion thread painting, which I have not done much of lately.
Firstly, I happened to glance at Monika Kinner-Whalen's blog and it reminded me of thread painting. then I was looking at Olga Norris' blog and saw some amazing work by an inspiring artist called Audrey Walker.
All this made my fingers itch to do some thread work and when I looked through my reference photos, I found this rather blurry photo I took a month or so after the fires.
And here is where I am at with this.
I am enjoying doing this and I will definitely be posting more as I go further on.
