Hello. Fiddling around with bits and bobs on the table this morning while I drank my coffee, I wanted to work out how I was going to wrap this metal heart in wool. I can just see it as a multi coloured wall decoration. I had a few practice goes but found the wool was slipping to the narrow end where the curves were. Covering the straight squares was going to be easy, but the curves were going to make it difficult.
Hmmm what else could I do? Cut out pieces of fabric to fit into the shapes. not going to work, how could I stitch them on. Mount it on a board and fill in the shapes with paint, might work but it would be messy, don't fancy doing that. Make cords with strips of fabric with a zigzag stitch on the sewing machine then wrap them around the wire. Might hold in place better than wool. No would take too long and I might get half way through the job and get fed up.
I checked how many more bottle tops I had collected, do I have enough. I would need some different sizes to fit the smaller gaps around the edges.
I came across this lady on my Twitter last night, some of you arty crafty people might like to have a look at the work that Jane Perkins does. She makes mainly portraits using discarded and unwanted plastics. Everything fits together like a giant jigsaw puzzle . Stand back and admire the art, or look closely to pick out thousands of individual components. I think you will be stunned.
She also has a web site. Click here to see it.
The sun is shining once more. I want to make a start on building a new cat shelter so I had better get on with it then. Thanks for popping in, and thanks for putting your name in the box when you comment. I am getting lots of junky spam crap, so I think I can now safely dump anything that is from Anonymous, without spending time checking every word.
We'll catch up soon.
