Well, my bargain for the month are these lovely wooden print blocks, bought at a very good price on a well known auction site, very pleased with my purchase!
I want to use these along side my own blocks, I think the combination is good.

I’m getting a bit addicted to block printing now I’ve started to do some again and I’ve been looking out for some blocks to buy. These are what I bought a few days ago.
The trouble is, I think I’ve started something now!

I’m planning on exploring faces a bit more in print, so here is block print face No. 2.
These two aren’t very good photos but you get the idea I hope!

I got inspired by a friend who is working on some portraits in clay to try to do some faces in block print. This is my first.
Castle Acre Art and Craft Fair tomorow, so I’ve made some cards to try out on my customers.
I’ve done some more prints in other colours since I did these, I’ll show you those soon if you don’t come along to the fair tomorrow!

After my net curtains disintegrated in the washing machine, I thought I would take the opportunity to use some of my new block printing inks and sewing skills!
This, of course, is my favourite bit.
Muslin is the most difficult fabric to work with because it is so unstable and takes a lot of patience, but finished items are so pretty!
Checking what trim to use.
Sowing the unstable muslin to a stable lace. Be gentle and do not stretch or pull.
Tape for the top to make a channel for threading the curtain rod.
The finished curtains are very pretty, I like using my textiles around my house and I can photograph them for my website!
