On a knitting theme....

Having just completed my first ever knitting project (& yes I've now bought some more wool today!) I thought I would share these images.  My gran was a excellent knitter & made lots of things for us all...these are picture details of some of the Kaffe Fassett jumpers & cardigans she made over the years...Most of these have been distributed amongst friends & the odd one to a lucky charity shop! I wanted to have a record of what she had done so I photographed the pieces before they went!

I think it may be a while before my skills have improved enough to attempt anything like these???

On Saturday I went to another workshop at the Newlyn Centre.  This time we were creating an 'Art Journal' - primarily working with watercolours & stamps.
Another really enjoyable day was had by all & I have decided to join this group once a month for some more 'creative play'!

Experiments with paint & stamps...

Assembling the book from black card

Creating the 'pages' from watercolour paper to add later..

I restricted my colour palette as I wanted a cohesive look to the journal..

The cover of my completed journal....
