busy ... mizzly

We have a misty mizzly day in Cornwall today.  Heavy rain was forecast but it's brighter than suggested.  It wouldn't take that much for the sun to break through the thick white cloud cover.

I find myself with a luxurious three days of free time to work on my textiles and sketchbooks for the September exhibition.  I am also preparing new business cards for St. Ives Textiles and working on the invitation to our Private View.  There will be a new blog post on the St. Ives Textiles website to look forward to as well.

Also, playful work in my "circles" sketchbook and catching up with samples and experiments with the Surface Treatment Workshop project that I am doing with my sister Evelyn.

Over the weekend I will be working on some small stitched samples and weavings for my sketchbook and art cards.  A busy time always.

Please leave a comment and let me know you visited today.  I would love to hear what you are working on at the moment.

'Mizzly' - what a great word!! And what a joy to have three whole days to spend being creative...enjoy every moment. To answer your question about what I'm working on - trying to get my sewing machine to co-operate is the main thing and if I do then I'll be working on the next barn. Fingers crossed!

It is crisp and chilly here - no mizzle at all - rather the promise of a frost tonight! What am I stitching at the moment? A bag. Surface stitching using a variety of threads (texture!)in a burgundy monotone. Trouble is, it has become monotonous and I am struggling to finish it. I am thinking of moving on to another project and returning to the bag later ... I would like to play a bit first, something I am not good at. And I really could do with a bag!

I do rather envy you having a sister who plays with (albeit, differently to) you.

Enjoy making your lovely art!

I'm planning on spending some time playing with my watercolours and coloured pencils. Have a wonderful weekend Carolyn.

I'm glad you had a window of opportunity to work on things for yourself. I did a little spinning over the weekend but not a lot happening today, full of a cold :-( We say mizzle too. xx
