Hia all, firstly thank you all for your kind and generous words. You have been so kind to me the ast few days and i apologise for venting, when I get down it gets me right down. All you lovely messages have helped pull me up.
Anyway neew things to make me feel better. For my City and Guilds this term is based on "Homes". I decided to not do my own home as it is a relatively new buildand of course is stuffed full with Ellie may's things. So I started about Home for me, which is the Welsh Valleys and the mining community. I started to think abou the things my Gran had told me about being a housewife in the valleys, and the wife of a miner. My Gran's mum was taken from the family when my Gran was young (she always told us she had died, but my Dad has since found out she was institutionalised and my Gran was too ashamed to say) So I have been as you know drawing objects from the home, like pegs, and flat irons and alsorts of other. Last weeks task was to make something 3D. Many of the others were working in wire but I wanted to use the pegs. I decided to weave words realated to the jobs of the housewife around the pegs. I also Used an old tea towel to give it some colour. I am really pleased how it turned out.
Love the close up!
I also made some paper a few weeks back and decided to weave these with some of the words I was using for the pegs. I really like these pieces especially the bottom one.
