Wow! its been 4 months since I last posted. Double vision, hospital appointments, and not being allowed to drive and now arthritis, affecting several joints I'm continuing to look for alternative crafty projects.
A mad moment as i'm no party animal, I decided to have a joint Birthday party with Phil at the end of June and making lots of giant paper flowers for the party filled hours with fun...
Tasseled bunting too...fun to make
I made table cloths and cushions sale bought Moroccan style duvet coverts and even cleared and redecorated my work room.
About time too, it's now a fabulous space i can actually get into again...space for one or two workshops maybe?
I'm reclaiming my workroom slowly, although 50+ boxes of wool/samples are still to be sorted
MOROCCAN TILE WALLPAPER: From B&Q, @£10 a roll a bargain and looks fabulous, went up really easy and the wall took 3 rolls to cover with some bits left over to decorate trays etc...
Couldn't find my compass, my ruler had chunks out of the edge, no hard pencils...its years since i had done any geometric drawings.
It took a while to engage my brain in this rewarding mathematical fun..
Simple [i thought], 12 point rosette, typical of the Moroccan tiles in the wall paper
The seemingly simple shapes are intriguing, although not quite so easy as you think to draw, or is it that i've not used a compass and ruler and delved into the geometric world for such a long time?
All you need is a compass, a ruler and a few pencils, time and a brain! lol.
No idea where its taking me, but as i'm unable to crochet for more than an hour at a time at the moment, its entertaining me between sewing [never thought i would go back to sewing again], paper crafting and decorating.
