An idea

I am just having an idea... but it mumbling along in my head ... not quite going anywhere.

I want to produce a new piece of work as part of the plan.

A new piece of textile art that I can take to show people I am a textile artist (don't yer know)

Did you hear that? I said it.. I am an artist!
Now I know I can say it here as there is only you, me and the dog reading this!

So back to the idea.

You have seen my red spotty tablecloth. Here and here and to be honest if I looked properly through my pictures I could find a lot more. It covers a standard kitchen table but around this table all of life happens. Currently 2 of the offspring are playing "cat bottle school" at it.
No, I have no idea either how you play that but they are occupied so we wont disturb them. The older one having built a Lego model at it and wandered off.
All will have to be cleared later to eat there.

I was thinking how that table cloth figures in our lives.

I was thinking how much of our life it sees.

My idea is a tablecloth about life.

hmmmm... needs a lot more thought... off to mumble.
thanks for listening.

Love that idea, it is true a tablecloth sees many things and wouldn't it be fab to have art by an artist (you are an artist) on your table.

But of course your an artist, exhibited too! I've just come back from the workshop with Julie Arkell and yep she did indeed have silver glitter eye makeup. Great fun although my little creature is a sad example, her's are fabulous though.

Great idea - making an art form out of something utilitarian...and then making it useful again...
