Getting To Grips...



with Thunderbird is proving to be...interesting, but worthwhile. I love the way it eats spam! I did get a bit alarmed when all my mail disappeared, and twenty messages seemed to be around somewhere, but not findable...but I sorted that out All By Myself. If you hear a note of smugness in that last comment, you're absolutely right.

So, have a look at Around and Around, a lutradur piece which I've just finished. It started as a dark brown monoprint on white linen, which had a piece of dyed lutradur added to it. I then stitched and added embellishment using coloured gutta. You don't see the layers particularly well in the overall shot, so I've added a detail, too. Remember you can click on the images for a closer (and larger) look. Overall, I'm pleased with the result. Now to tackle the Much Bigger Piece of Lutradur that's lying on the ironing board, for which I Have Plans.

Thunderbird indeed! Smugness is definitely allowed.

Marion, I love this new piece! The colors and the circles are wonderful.

This is a gem, Marion. You are so productive it's giving me a complex. But I don't know how you cope without OUtlook Express, in which you can color-code all the people you want to read and ignore everybody else. Last I looked, plain old Outlook wasn't that sophisticated.
