Yes I think we are! 

Everything that should be in storage is now there.  It looks a bit grotty, but its been cleaned, is dry and safe (and free). 
Access is easy and its only a few minutes drive away.

Peace of mind with a padlock on each door.

Here’s something I photographed on the 22nd Jan but haven’t got around to post before now…. these are Indigo dyed fabrics from the African Fabric Shop.  I just had to stop moving boxes for a day and do something creative.

 07-05 

It started off with a “wax print adventure pack” supplemented with indigo dyed damask, some shibori dyed fabrics and a few extra pieces.  I didn’t have a plan, I cut up a few pieces, cut up a few more, placed them on the floor and filled in the gaps.  Being so carefree and intuitive was great fun.  The fabrics are all so different, but have the indigo dye as a theme so it all works together.
Now to hand stitching – more about this soon.

I had to prepare a CV and “photograph”, well how can you chose one photograph?  So I started playing with collages in Picasa and came up with this.  Inspiration to get me “going” again.
