Having a flash back to the 90's
I should be finishing projects and cleaning/ packing for overseas.
The kids found one of my old University books yesterday in the shed, I've been looking for this book for ages!
Way back a life time ago I studied Fabric Design at the College of Fine Arts New South Wales & this was one of my subjects.
It has all my recipes in it for Vegetable dye. I knew I still had it - would have been handy two years ago when I needed it! and I was teaching a group of Yr 5 kids about dying techniques.
I loved it so much, its got me inspired to do some more fabric work.
I've been pouring over my workbook - its brought back so many ideas and basic skills I had forgotten about.
It will all have to wait - I leave for London/ Venice/ Florence/Paris on Monday.
At the moment on top of my list is finishing sewing projects, I have a pile of quilts to bind and other projects to finish.
I'd like to come home to a clean creative slate :)
especially now I have an itch to make some fabric and new quilts.
|a few more cloud pillows for the kids to finish before I go - they are hot property in our house, very comfy.|
I also thought seeing I'm on the topic of me & the 90's - I'd show you a few non fabric related things that I love in my house that have lots of memories :)
|Boxes from Paris, whistle belong to my husband when he did a short stint in the navy, little cup is my husbands christening cup.|
|the plates are from my cousins grandmother when she was doing a clean out a few years ago & my husbands grandmother (she is 101 yrs this year!)|
|the rock is from a beach holiday & my mother brought it back for my son aged 5/6 who at the time was rock crazy, spiral of three from Ireland - bought on my trip overseas when I was 22 years old.|
