jar magic

I have been stuffing jars with silk thread and tissue silk in the Stuff Steep and Store method albeit with less store than some. I leave them on the balcony rail in the sun where they get visited by one of our cats.

This afternoon seemed like the right time to open two jars, one was Coreopsis flower with copper pictured third from the left {above}  and the other Montbretia flowers second from the left which are a weed here. Pictured on my new apron that has been made from an opshop (suspect) silk nightshirt, it has two pockets one especially for my trusty secateurs.


Mono Printing Workshop


I am off to Mt Tamborine tomorrow to my friend Bec Andersen’s Studio to part take in a Sandra Pearce workshop Mono Printing . I am a bit excited as it is a different medium for me, I have got a stash of leaves and flowers to take with me but other than that I will keep you posted with my out comes.  Mean while I will un bundle two silk pinafore/ aprons tomorrow… what will that bring ??
