Bit scarey

Oh its all a bit scarey starting my first post here on the blog.
Right ok lets start at the beginning .....
First off I am a girl from Canada living here in the UK and loving it.
Ok when I say girl I mean !! Over 25 :)
More on me later!

At the moment I am working on a sketch of a quilt that I will be
doing in a workshop with Dijanne Cevaal.
but my skills at sketching are not so great so just added photo of the cloth
and perhaps once I work on the sketch a bit I can post that... no promises though.

I am inspired by the workmanship of this tribe that makes Kuba cloth in africa.
Actually a few artists were taken by this work as well, Matisse had a piece on his
studio wall.
I am going to start off with black background and then will hand dye
the yellow mustard type colour for the design ... will post some pics of
the hand dyed in a few days.
Hopefully get the fabric dyed this week and will post the progress.
Ta Ta for now.

Woo hoo! She's blogging, she's blogging, she's bloggity blogging ... Feel free to link to my blog if you like, but irritatingly I can't always see the images I've posted - I get the little red cross instead. Does that ever happen to you?
