After our lovely walk the other day I have been inspired to make an Autumn Block.
Here is the beginning part. I may remove the pinky red corner, not sure yet if it goes but I'm happy with the rest. I managed to find some fabric already printed with trees and I hope to use this to my advantage.
Raked out some red beads that look a bit like berries and a real dried leaf that I have had in the drawer for ages.
The leaf above is the real dried leaf and the other two have been printed from this leaf onto cotton fabric. I'm going to carefully cut around these and applique them onto the block.
If you are interested in doing this the site to buy the fabric paper is www.craftycomputerpaper.co.uk
They not only sell paper but also lots of other interesting things.
Once printed you peel the back away and are left with only the fabric.
Finally a couple of kitty pictures.
A rare picture of Polly sharing a chair with Rowan.
And an even rarer moment of her actually condescending to give her a bit of a wash.
Although Polly is the mum to all of the others she is really off hand with them. They would all love to be friendly but usually she'll have none of it.
Notice the lump of fur on the carpet (this is a small one.), these are scattered all around the place mostly from Polly who doesn't seem to shed fur like the others but does it in great big lumps.
