My mind has been buzzing with allsorts for a while: thought-provoking reading (especially the Seeing Things collection of essays), writing the Sea post for Ragged Cloth Café, items on the news and in the newspaper, ... and chatting to the hairdresser, ... as well as thinking about my most recent swimmer based design. I have now printed out that last onto silk, and it will be ready to stitch during Wimbledon watching next week.
But playing about with the final tweaks on that developed into ideas for a new design out of the scan of one of my collagraph prints with a design for a lino print.
I'm not sure about this one yet, but I'm relatively pleased with it, and I have an idea about how I could stitch it, but it needs to sit and stew for a while yet.
Fiddling about with that this morning, I just started following instructions from the be-buzzed brain and came up with a design which is probably not suitable for stitching. I normally abandon such designs, or store them for later cannibalisation, but this time I might just make it a digital print.
The strange thing is that it is based on a photograph I took of fat on a frying pan!
