Totally out of context

Silly Americans, get on the clue bus.

This was a comment on a blog entry I was reading just now - it really made me laugh, but looking at it coldly, maybe it was because of the context it was in. Does it tickle anyone else?

Karate Kid

I was tidying out a drawer and found my son's old T shirt that I had enhanced with applique and free machine embroidery, along with a few permanent pen marks. I think I found a book image that I traced then machined over before tearing it away.

I feel textiles calling me at the moment

Chunky update

Well, there was I thinking that my rose page was awful - luckily the recipient didn't think so - what a relief!

Ooh I loved making these

Two friends have recently and not so recently had a baby, so I have returned to an old love - bootee making. I need to get my groove on and make some matching body suits (just a bit of applique and maybe some FME to tart them up). What do you think
There's the larger pair for a wee boy and a dinky pair for a tiny baby girl

What do you think?

Do you agree

Just saw this on a friend's blog http://maggiegracecreates.blogspot.com

'the difference in art and craft, is that art has a message to give someone'

Do you agree? How do you differentiate between art and craft - if you do? Off to have a think about my own question now

New Blogger

OK - being the semi luddite that I am, I have resisted moving to new blogger but the system has forced me to do that now. So, any comments, thoughts etc on the new version? Anything I should know about, beware of, appreciate or add?

Chunky pages

A couple of pages that I've done for a monthly chunky page swap..... shame about the glare on the fancy lady!

I am here - I promise - just dealing with real life at the mo. Anyhow, here's a card I've made for my brother in law Sean using Trish Bayley's 10 minute collage technique, stamp bought from Suzie Jefferson and a vintage free school meal ticket from Carol Hay - how cool is that ticket?!
