Most recent work plus LOADS of images to wet your imagination!

Here are my latest pieces drying and l am really pleased with some of these.

From bits and pieces from the garden like, tulips and a poppy on a mixture of wool and mohair. It dyes  beautifully.
Next bundles being created!

Tony, Jenny and l went to Kew Gardens on Tuesday and l thought l would show you the sort of images l take. These are some inspirations for my work. Feast your eyes of these images and let your imagination run riot my friends. Enjoy

This is called The Jade Vine..funnily enough!

I hope these images have wetted your imaginationx

My new pieces of work and flowers picked from today.

Isn't this a beautiful flower? The purple in the poppy is so dark and holds so much powder. I have picked this and it is in one of my bundles.Can't wait to see how it turns out.

 Here are some of the flowers l picked today, on our walk round the garden.
 This is a finished l am going to decide how to hang!
 I have taken some images of different parts of the finished piece. I really like it.

 This is the piece l am working on now.

 Here is the today's collection going into the pot with extra bits thrown into the pot.
I put a brick into the pot to help keep the bundles down while they soak up the dye. This is the exciting bit...and l am gettting better at waiting! surprise, surprise.
