over the top of the allotment hedgerow
you might catch a glimpse of beaded seedy things
amongst the chiffon grassy things
on top of layers of chiffon I've used fly stitches with beads
and the corner of the field is bordered with metallic lace
which is now tarnished and dark with age ... just how I like it
I've secured the lace with some invisible stitches in gold thread
you might also find some "sluggy" type things
they came about by painting and gilding on top of small pressed pleats in the fabric
I added some gold metallic beads which then made them look a bit slug like
... a bit like "Sid the Sloth" from Ice Age ;o)
so this turned into a happy piece that makes me smile
fabrics, paints, gilding flakes, a few more "emeralds"
layered fraying chiffons, running stitches, fly stitches, beads and metallic lace
this one reminds me so much of the fields and landscapes
along my favourite coast road between St. Ives and St. Just
the fields stretch out to meet the sea and sky
and the cows come up to have a nose and greet you
they like to slobber on bags and cameras too, if you're not careful!
these fields and dry stone walls are further along the coast road near Geevor
it's a place I like to go blackberry picking in autumn
the horses like to get up close and personal too ...
hello ... a moo from Morvah and a neigh from Geevor ♥
St. Ives bay this morning ...
the skies were very stormy over Hayle and Godrevy way
but brighter over the town ...
I had a great morning with St. Ives Textiles
and afterwards enjoyed a pasty in the harbour with friend Margaret
looking out over this view
I call it "linen clouds"
tomorrow ... "the pumpkin patch"
