|Sea washed shells|
|Waiting to be washed, purple carrot dye|
As you can see I have also been doing a little dyeing, we only get purple carrots in the shops at Halloween though I did try and grow them recently without much success. A vast difference in colour, the darkest blue is nettle yarn, the palest silk and the purple/browny colour is wool. I am hoping they will keep their colour once out of the washing machine.

Although I didn't sell any of my own work it was great to see individual artists work selling so well.
I was so busy I didn't get a chance to take any photos but I am there again on Thursday morning so will try to take a few then.
In the mean time I am producing a few smaller pieces that usually sell well, just to cover my costs.

I may have to put this on one side for a while though as I want to start on a larger piece. I have been invited along with my good friend Liz Hewitt to put on an exhibition at a disused quarry near where I live. It is now a nature reserve with artists studios and a cafe with gallery space. However this piece has been a fortuitous and invalable experiment into the style I wish to use for the larger piece which will be based on the cut face of the quarry.
