No Time For Artwork Today

Today we had to go to Hamilton for Rob to have his hip revisited by the specialist so no art work today . I did manage a trip to the craft store and got some lovely new skin tone rayon threads. Those pinky shades are so necessary in portrait quilts. And when I got home this new joy was waiting. I have been saving up to get the Derwent ink blocks since trying them at Jane Dunnewold's course in Christchurch in November. Finally I ordered them from Amazon and when we got home today they were there in the mail. Now I can mist a base fabric with water and apply the blocks directly by dragging them on their side or more intensely by drawing with them. Hmmm can't wait to experiment with these and then stamp/thermofax on top. Unfortunately after the humid rain we have had this last week the garden is also clamoring for attention so one or the other is going to win out here
