I am really pleased with the work done by the people on this five week workshop
which finished today - despite some heavy snow in my local area. I came down
the slope along the track from my garage with great trepidation, but the main roads
were clear. On the way back I got half way up the track when my poor car refused
to go any further and we had to back down. Still it was a good morning.
were started with samples to go back to for the future.
Melanie Testa has been inviting people to join in with her project sketching
with a ruling pen on fabric. I haven't joined in but it has been interesting to see the
results.This week she extolled the virtues of the Rapidograph pen and reminded me
that I had one some twenty years ago. I spend many hours finding it, working out
how to put it together and finaling cleaning the nib,which involved shower gel and a beading needle. Imagine my thrill when today, after a long soak it worked.
So this is for Melanie(see my links).
I know this post is set out very strangely. Blogger is having a
strange afternoon, and I have given up trying to set it out more neatly.
