I have been absent for a short while. Work, holiday, blah, blah...life...you know how it goes.
If you follow me on instagram (kylacotterell) then you would have seen my capers and art abandonments etc over the past few weeks. I am slowly uploading the photos and will update my blog soon.
At the weekend I went for a Coven outing to the Shepton Mallet craft show. I was lucky enough to be given a couple of tickets from the organisers as they used my photo on their publicity (ooh, get me!!) and I contacted them and they were very obliging.
I was being smug as I only spent £1 on craft. The fat quarter hidden in the middle of the photo. I kept walking past the Dinky Screens stall. A couple of young ladies from Bristol and this was their first show. Having done some screen printing in the past I was really taken with their compact and contemporary set up. I chatted to them, wandered off and ended up back at the stall on 3 separate occasions!
As we went to leave to return home I decided it was fate as I walked past them again....out came the cash....purchase made!! I chose the 'Bristol' stencil collection. I live near a steam railway and we have the balloons going over us regularly so it seemed really appropriate.
I am looking forward to playing with this.
My only new stash for several months (apart from a couple of magazines and a replacement watercolour paint)....but we do have the NEC only a few weeks away!
