Koda traces can take a very long time to produce especially when doing colour separations. With all the knitting, embroidering and Koda tracing this week I needed to balance life with a bit of Rock & Roll. The Damned were playing (original line up, Captain Sensible and all) at Inside Out, Darlington and so I headed down there tonight to see them! Brilliant night love live bands!

In the print room today dyed and printed two samples of the same design working on a number of colours and using illuminated discharge. Well the colours are interesting a little disappointed with the pink and the green but they will be great to embroider back into ! :)

Where is the time going! We are only 19 days away from our minor project handin! Embroidery is becoming a marathon scenario.... :} Harrogate Knitting and stitching exhibition looming to and have put a couple of things together for the College stall, Cleveland College of Art & Design.
Had a few cards left from last year so put them together as a pack of five blank notecards and envelopes. Then my little bobble hats have evolved into egg cosies and made five of those all package up to. I really enjoyed putting them together but felt neglectful of my embroidered sample although it was real good to have a break from working on that particular piece, phew!
I loving the sample but it's soooooo time consuming! Pictures shortly :}

I have knitted five little bobble hats for the innocent smoothie Big Knit 2009. I wanted to remember those who have served in our armed forces but find themselves having to choose between keeping warm or eating, as so many of our elderly population do.

And here's a little sample of my embroidery for fashion garment!
Busy, Busy, Busy working on one of my eight designs for my minor project! Food was needed to keep my marathon embroidery weekend going and I popped out to Sainsbury's to buy dinner and came across Innocents little food pots, Thai Coconut curry and Mexican sweet potato chilli with winter warmer knitted ankle warmers! lol When did these appear on the shelf? Its all part of the Big Knit Campaign to raise money for Age Concern and Help The Aged and it's so cool the little smoothie drinks they make have little bobble hats! :)
