Looking over my back fence
Debra asked me about dyed fabric I promised to show before I went to England and then didn't- I cannot rememeber the fabric now- sorry. But I did dye some more fabric today trying to make a fabric that was more subtle with greys and ochres to make another hellfire quilt. I will then burn the edges onto what look like tree trunks and go from there. Whilst i was photographing the sun was behind the fabric and backlit it in a lovely way- the fabric of itself is backlit in a way but the actual backlighting made it different.
I also want to say thanks to the people who told me where they had come from, in looking at my blog- and thanks for all the lovely comments as well!
I have devised a little walking circuit on our land ( basically I go around and around trying to do Junott's 10,000 steps- not quite yet there but up to a regular 5 kilometres)- everyone I have told says how boring- but I love looking at minutae and tonight as the sun was going down I had to break the walk and get the camera to show you some of the view from my back fence- it's so peaceful and the light at this time of day is magic- quite different to anywhere else in the world.Sometimes looking at the minutae makes you realise how special a place can be- and I must admit I am getting ideas for more lace.
