The Owl and The Pussy Cat

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea In a beautiful 'red and white'(!) boat, They took some honey, and plenty of money, Wrapped up in a five pound note. The Owl looked up to the stars above, And sang to a small guitar, 'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love, What a beautiful Pussy you are, You are, You are!What a beautiful Pussy you are!'

Indulging myself in crafty stuff

On Friday afternoon I cut out a stencil
and Rachel screen printed it onto some bits of cloth for me

I think I'll make some big bunting with it

next day I had a go at rag rugging

we combined this technique

with this technique, I can't remember what they are called!

and made these beautiful flowers

this is mine with the hessian all turned in, sitting on a rug at home, I love it,
I'm going to make a rug covered in these,
perhaps with a green/brown background.

Saturday was peg loom weaving

here's me doing it with wool.
The girl showing us how to do it had made a mattress like this,
mmm, I like that idea

So, just three more projects in the pipeline....!
That's enough about Buddhafield for now, can you tell I quite enjoyed it?
A friend has just given me some old coats, a green pigskin one and a purple wool/felt one, possibly ex army? I think they might end up as book covers!
