Well I finally gave up on the beads after sewing about 30 on; I couldn't face sewing another 100+ on. I might use the fabric as a panel in a bag. But I have enjoyed playing with an image of tree branches and making a collage out of the variations. This seems to be the way my work is going at the moment, creating images and transferring them to fabric. I'm finding the tutorials at the Camera Club very helpful in learning more about layers and the enthusiasm is infectious!
Off to do some more work with psp images!

There's a lot of hair on the floor!

This past week has been very frustrating. Changing operating systems on the computer has meant I can't access jpeg pics on the harddrive so will have to wait for a solution unless I play about with memory sticks and things which I find difficult to do (I have a notebook full of little "how-tos").
In the meantime I've been working on a textile made by sandwiching voile snippets between water-soluble "Romeo", then free machining and finally using the soldering iron to make a holey pattern. At the moment I am adding some beads, but rapidly becoming bored! I want to get back to making digital designs .... Will let you know how I get on!
