Louise Snook at the Craft & Fair...




What's red, white & yellow?



My attempt at screen printing,

that's what.


 Can you believe it?!




  Leaf Screen Printing




After posting up my Flickr Fest Best (last Friday) on lino printing,

the first stall to capture my eye at the



Craft & Quilt (Sydney) was

Louise Snook


she's is all about printing (screen & lino)

yes yes.





  Leaf Screen Printing




You can't ignore signs like that, so I booked into

Louise's workshop.




An hour & half later

I walked away with a new tea towel

designed & printed by my

own fair hands.



 (& Louise's guidance - Thank you!)





  Leaf Screen Printing





Will I be having another go at printing?




Most definately!




(I bought some goodies so I have no excuses)

Crochet: Magnum Mystery (WIP)

Crochet: Magnum Mystery




What's red, yellow & brown?




Don't know?

Neither do I really but...



Crochet: Magnum Mystery Hearts





 After messing about a little with

Sarah London's

heart motif,

I think I am going to make a cozy blanket for myself.



No not made up of hundreds of hearts,

I haven't the attention span for that.



I plan on sewing my hearts onto a blanket,

once I have crocheted it.





Crochet: Magnum Mystery Blanket (WIP)





I have only made 3 squares of my blanket so far

(using crossed double crochet stitches)


but I think I can do this

before the end of winter.



Scrap that,

I will have a new blanket before the end of winter!

(oh yes)

Flickr Fest Best is going back to school...




Okay, so I am not actually going back to school, but I thought we should look at

wonderful art of Lino Printing.



You remember, those weird little blocks

that your art teacher encouraged you all to express yourselves on,

but promptly removed when he realised his new budding artists/thugs were

carving into everything but the blocks?




No? It must just have been my class then.



Anyway, some people are actually good at Lino printing.

 Check this lot out.
