After our trip to Manchester last week I was quite excited by an idea I had to use the new modern buildings such as this one to stitch shapes into felt.
By the time I'd added different colours to the backgrounds it was all a bit lumpy for stitching which is a shame becasue I love the 'Jetsons' look of some of them. If you know Manchester you might understand.
So I went back to my other project. Did I say I've decided to make lots of these and join them somehow into a bigger piece.
It will be predominantly greeny -blue.
I photographed this late afternoon ..isn't it wonderful to have a bit of slanting sunlight?
This bit below is not for the main piece. I think I might make it into a brooch.
I'm footling about on these and really I should be making more of my other brooches for shops.
So anyway...while I was stitching I had what I initially thought was a bright idea for a little blog game about ......
I even made an extra page on my blog for it.
This is what I was thinking about...we make our blog posts and spell check and get rid of untidiness and then click publish.
We only see each others' beautifully edited font of choice but wouldn't it be nice to use our own handwriting?
I thought it might be fun to have one day next week where everyone who wants to will do a complete post about handwriting, in handwriting.
Of course you'd have to upload it as a picture either scanned or macro shot and make sure its big enough to read.
I thought if you want to take part, you could leave a comment here with a link to your blog and I would make a new page on my blog with a complete list of links.
But then I wondered if it might be viewed with caution ..maybe scope for someone to forge your writing..of course you won't add your signature, that would be foolish.
Crossings out and spelling mistakes would be allowed.
Let me know what you think.
If we get more than 20 willing we'll do it.
