Sunday, I was back to the Woodbridge Market after a two month absence. All the usual stalls were there, and Albe’s pumpkin soup and sausage rolls for lunch, Mmm… We , the stallholders, have the same table position each market, and I have the long table facing the front door, and I can see all the visitors who come in as well as out the door and across the street to the Woodbridge Village Store. Yesterday the car parking spot outside the store was occupied by four legs instead of four wheels –
The horse was fairly tall, and the teenagers riders were seen to climb on to the horse’s back by first climbing onto the shop window sill 🙂 and attracting the interest of passersby.
Over the past couple of weeks, I have been dyeing lots of cotton fabric using a different dye and technique – I’ll have some pictures and the story when I have finished ironing and cutting up. As well I’ve been stamping and stencilling many of my silk scarves.
While in Bunbury, west Australia, I found this large Indian woodcut block –
which prints out a very fine line design –
In Perth, I went to visit Dale Rollerson’s Thread Studio – a veritable Alladin’s Cave of just about every thing you think you might need for your textile art work and more – ( very easy to empty the wallet) – where I bought some DeColourant and DeColourant with colour.
I used this on some scarves with some new and old stencils –
This 2-tone green scarf wasn’t very appealing, so I stencilled a gold scribble first –
and then added a dark blue-green animal skin or sunray type spiral over the top –
Meanwhile out in the garden –
and the blue bee bush – I can never remember the correct name for this bush – is in full bloom.
