I would love to share with you some lovely indigo blue things that have come my way recently

My friend Judy Scott sent me this absolutely gorgeous heart made from indigo blue resist dyed fabric.  Judy filled it with the lavender and it smells so summery. I absolutely love it to bits!

Judy also sent me this card which has wonderful layers of painted and dyed fabrics, pieced and machine stitched. Thank you so much Judy x

My friend Rosie brought me back some postcards from a recent V&A exhibition

And recently I had some beautiful things fom my friend Cathy Cullis
She sent me the original of her watercolour called "Madame" because I loved it so much!

I wanted a copy for my sketchbook so I copied the original to vellum
and then dipped it in wax to give it a lovely translucent feel. Thank you so much Cathy x

I have some lovely friends x

Hope you enjoyed the blues today
Have a lovely weekend
