Hong Kong

Wow Hong Kong was everything that I had been told about and more.....I traipsed the streets for hours with my trusty street map and my octopus card seeing the most amazing sights, smelling the most amazing aromas and tasting the most delicous if undistinguishable foods! Alot of dried fish and medicinal herbs...not sure what fate the poor toads were awaiting..The shopping is awesome, I am sure there is nothing in Hong Kong that one cannot buy....a shopping mall every 100 yards and street markts around every corner.

miserable moths

Miserable colours are what inspire me ....and moths....while I will never be a neat embroiderer, I am pleased with the way the colours turned out..I dyed lots of squares of linen by dipping them in various pans of dye and overdying to get lovely muddy mothy colors!

acorns and leaves

Autumn is definitely in the air here, lots of spiders in the house and the conkers about to drop! Tried experimenting with doing some autumn colours for a bracelet, and after creating alot of mess and cutting up lots of bits of fabrics I did achieve something that could be put round a wrist! Must make more.......!
