All play and no work!

My good friend Edwina came to visit today. We had persuaded her to make a video of her Cut and Come Again patchwork technique for DesignMatters TV. We didn't really have to bribe her (much) but once the video was done it was time for lunch in the garden and then back into the studio to play. Us girls have got to have some fun!! The afternoon was spent discharging hand dyed fabrics with deColorant and deColorant Plus. Edwina had brought a selection of Thermofax screens she's using for her current series of quilts inspired by lichen. The discharge paste coped well with even the finest detail and she was very happy with the results. Laura discharged lengths of fabric to make gorgeous linings for the embroidered purses she sells. It may be my studio but it's only small and there was no room for me to work as well so  I was put in charge of the camera!!

Here's a link to Edwina's blog:

Bye for now,
