....back on the sketching front of things with a page from the A5 book. the other day i had to wait an hour for fancy printouts from the fancy printers, so i sat in St. Ann's Square in Mancland and filled in some blank areas and drew a page and a bit. the print room was a game of half and halves again, i was still unhappy with the circus image so i only only exposed the one design but then was unable to print it as the tables are fully booked. so its a waiting game until Tuesday. i am itching to print as after Saturday it will be drawing and printing all the way until the USA trip.
...the sewing machine and i have been zooming up and down triangles to make this batch of bunting ready for the Manchester Craft Mafia Summer Fair. i was intending to make bunting using my own fabric patterns but the tables are fully booked until Tuesday so i decided to make some using my stash of vintage and found fabric. another box of supplies have been used up which is good news. also if you come along tomorrow there will be a £1 material bag table featuring fabric, buttons, beads and all sorts of art materials that are unfortunately no longer needed by the MCM members.
Manchester Craft Mafia's Handmade Summer Fair at The Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester from 10am until 4pm. FREE ADMISSION!
