I started punching out these little flower shapes yesterday using a heavy water-colour paper.It killed three punches but I was determined to realise my idea. It's not very original (what is?) but it was something to do whilst huddled round the fire yesterday evening.
We accidentally ran out of oil last week, it took six cold days for the truck to finally roll up yesterday. Just got the house warm again and the system crashed, currently waiting for the very busy engineer to arrive. Thank goodness we have a multi-fuel burner installed so one room is lovely and toasty the rest of the house is like an igloo. How did we manage before central heating?
I was slightly underwhelmed by the result of all my punching, the colours were not subtle enough for what I wanted but the resulting waste strips that I dunked into my bin ends of procion dyes (which must be at least six months) old proved to be quite lovely.
I'm having a think about what to do with these.
The obvious outcome is to add stitch and make a book cover but they have such a tactile quality that maybe some thing 3d rather than flattening them with stitch.
Thank goodness the heating engineer has just arrived it looks as though we will be snowed in by tomorrow.
