FUN A DAY DUNDEE

Thanks for all the fun Dundee Fun A Day!

(It all started off on Hogmanay when somebody handed me a strange object and asked – “What can you do with this? Take it away and have a go!” So my Funaday project was finding out what I could do with a six foot shed skin from a boa constrictor!)

If you want to see what I did come along to the FunADay Exhibition this weekend.

It’s in WASP studios, Meadowmill, West Henderson Wynd, Dundee.  The opening night is on Friday 10 February from 7 – 9pm.  The Exhibition runs from 10.00am – 7.00pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Here are some photographs I took of the fun I had during the month.

 

 

 

 

 


Fun A Day Dundee 2 January 2017

Well, I’m a crochet tutor! So the first thing I saw when I looked at this shed snakeskin was a beautiful lacy crochet pattern. Don’t know quite how it would turn out or what I might use it for. Maybe give this a try out sometime and see if it can be made into a working pattern. Probably would need a more delicate name than Boa’s Belly Stitch though!

Puzzles and frustrations of a blogging beginner

OK – After what seems like forever, I am still learning how to blog.  Yesterday I learned that galleries don’t seem to work very well.  The pictures looked small and uninteresting and didn’t display at all in facebook.  Just a big blank space – which did have a link to the gallery page, but it took ages to load.    Now I understand why people post one photograph at  time.  So, please be patient with me as I learn.

 


WORK IN PROGRESS – click to enlarge

A quick look at what I am working on at the moment.  A wall hanging incorporating willow canes, copper wire and a wide  variety of yarns.  I haven’t counted them!


The exhibition has begun!!  Mavericks Art Craft​ – which includes my sweet self – have a full exhibition of work for sale at Halllgreen Castle, Inverbervie until 21 September. All part of North East Open Studios (NEOS)​ Do come along and see!

INTO 2015 – COMPUTERLESS FOR THE MO!

Hi Everybody.  This year has started quiet.  I have been happily working away at new pieces of crochet work.

Meantime, my trusty computer friend had been quietly languishing in the Pooter Hospital 😦 awaiting a delicate operation “upgrading the hard drive”

I did not realise how much I depend on it till it isn’t here! I am without the technology to upload new photographs from my camera until at least  next week.  In the meantime here is a photograph of an older piece of work “Connections” whilst on display at Hallgreen Castle.Connection

This work was inspired by my favourite tree, a dead coppiced elm in the Nature Reserve at Kinnordy.  “Dead wood” is such an important item in a natural woodland, providing food, homes and shelter for many living things, and without it so much is lost from the natural environment.  There is just so much life around this “dead” tree.

Enjoy!!
