Space - the final frontier

Last weekend I had a massive clearout of the front bedroom, which henceforth shall be known as "My Studio". I now have a large (6' x 2'6") heavyweight worktable as well as my dinky pine desk and each day after work I have done a bit more clearing and sorting. Al's away this weekend so I shall really put some time and effort into the room. I shall take a photo and post it on the blog. I keep saying to myself - I deserve this!

New coursework blog

As this blog has taken on it's own character I have set up a new blog to post my C&G coursework on. It's - doesn't actually trip off the tongue but I think it says it all. Nothing actually on it yet - but will start soon.

Module 2 bag - watch this space

My brain has been spinning with ideas for the exterior of my creature bag. I have scrapped my last prototype - pulled it all apart so I can start afresh. Mmmmm - feels rather good. Haven't scrapped the jagged "slips" I'd made - can work them in to the new design. I want the outside to have a jagged, spiky feel to it, which will contrast with the fluffy interior. I'm going to make a multi-layered fabric (using lots of stiff dress net for texture and "bite") and piece it with the spiky edges jutting out. I will then stuff the joins with some metallic bits and bobs.
Watch out - I have to finish this soon - can't let it go on any longer.

I'm also working on Mod 3 at the same time! Got some more button ideas. If only my body could keep up with my overactive brain. Hey ho........................
