Once more, before I start the post, I have to tell you my latest bad news. Not regarding the buns this time. Driving home from Quilt Guild, I heard a knocking sound and a light came on my dashboard. I pulled over to investigate and found this.
Yep, a ruddy great bolt embedded in my tyre!
Anyway, back to the craft. In March me and wonderful mum went to a Letterpress workshop at Malt Cross in Nottingham. It's a pub which also hosts art and craft workshops. This workshop was with Cleeve Press. Unfortunately, my depression reared its ugly head and I was in a bit of a state that day. Lino cutting was on offer to make our own motifs and I did quite a lot of that, just sitting quietly so I didn't get the most of out this workshop.
Here are two of the stamps I cut from lino. I really do love lino cutting. I just wish I had some artistic talent!
I cut some more stamps which I didn't get a chance to use in this workshop, though I can use them with ordinary inks or fabric inks. These are things I love. Besides bunnies that's my sewing machine, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and coffee!
Oh, and Mr CA of course...
It's our wedding anniversary on Sunday (as I write this), which means last Sunday (as you read this). I meant to get this framed as a present! I completely forgot. There were a variety of fonts to use on traditional wooden blocks. I failed to get a photo of the blocks or the letter presses (there were three), but you can see some in the post where we did a taster session - go here.
The bunny rabbit and some quilt-block like motifs got a run out, but I couldn't get it right, I wasn't pleased with this at all.
I'm afraid that's all I have to show for this workshop. I failed.
