Shibori, sketching and carving.

Today some preparation for an indigo dyeing day in July. A little shibori work with friends.
 the beginning of a lot of stitch
 Sharon on the smocking machine
 Beads held with elastic bands
Janet's wonderful conglomeration!

All was definitely aided by copious chocolate cup cakes by Pat - chief baker.
A very soporific afternoon.
Plenty more stitching to go before the big day in the summer.

 I picked this from my garden this week. Does anyone know what it is please?
 I planted it some years ago but this spring it has put on a stunning display - maybe because of the mild winter. The flowers are small but lily like. I don't think it is a lily though.
A chance to sketch. Only by drawing does one REALLY observe properly, without distraction.
Also I have done some long overdue lino carving. I've been meaning to for ages. I was a bit ambitious with the over-all size of this as it took hours to cut and my hand was tingling and aching throughout. At last it's finished though. I shall take some rubbings of it and then use it to print, but for now I just like the block as it is. I hope to post some good results soon. The design I took from a steel bench in the garden...again, only now have I REALLY observed this.

It's really just a question of stopping to LOOK isn't it?

  1. I believe the flower is a columbine.

  2. Yellow flower is a trout lily...Erythronium americanum. I am so addicted to the indigo dyeing. I want to try a lot of things with stitching...

  5. A beautiful sketch of a delicate flower with a rather clumsy name! Interested to see where your carving takes you and the indigo day is something to look forward to.

  6. The shibori bundling looks such fun. I believe Anonymous is correct, the flower is a columbine, but I had never seen a yellow one before. Here they are red, and in Colorado where I grew up the blue ones are the State Flower. -sus

  7. I thought the flower a columbine, too, but I don't know trout lilies. Look forward to seeing the woodcut results.

  8. Once again I'm just overwhelmed with your 'sketching', dear Clare - how gifted you are!

    And the lino carving also looks great - I'm very much looking forward to your prints with it!
