A blog about my interests, which include fabric landscapes and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

CQTeers meeting and more flowers
The jar of liquid you see in the picture is homemade walnut ink which is what we played with. Irene made her own simply by boiling ripe black walnuts and some water. Never again will I spend money to buy walnut ink, because this stuff is great! She very kindly shared some of her stash with us and I can't wait to do some further playing with it.
The flower is a tree peony which is currently in gorgeous full bloom in our garden. Last year it only had one or two flowers so it was a surprise to see how well it's doing right now. If you'd like to use any of the flower images you see on my blog in your art, feel free to nab the photos!
