Well here it is at last! I've been suffering with a flu like bug this week so was a bit slow getting on with the binding. It took me a while to decide but in the end I used a Ricky Time multicolour hand dye as I think it complements the quilt colours. I've added sequins to the wax crayon band and was tempted to add more beads but I think I'll leave it at that.
This was the original inspiration for my design:
Stoke Museums website.
There are lots of pictures of ceramics designed by other famous names on the site including the most well known - Clarice Cliff.
Earlier this week I spent several hours playing with EQ7 designs. I wanted to make some greetings cards. I ordered them online and they arrived this weekend. Only trouble was they weren't quite as I expected! I hadn't realised, when I browsed through the cards section on this particular website, that some were folded like birthday cards and some were just a single card like an inviatation or announcement. It just so happens that the square cards are the flat ones - oh dear!
I'm very pleased with the pictures - here are a couple of them:
They are on a nice weight of glossy card and the colours and detail are lovely. So today I went to the hobby store to buy white card to make square folded cards and glue dots to stick my lovely pictures on the front. So the moral of the story is: read shopping websites carefully to make sure you get what you really want!
