I love Fridays!!

It has been such a busy week - going back to work after a couple of weeks on holiday is always a shock to the system BUT now it is Friday morning and the weekend is in sight!

I have been reading about Lutrador over the last 18 months(?), primarily in Cloth Paper Scissors but it didn't particularly attract me as something I had to try. At the recent Art Retreat in Fremantle, however, my friend Sue did Lesley Riley's Fabric Book workshop and I saw the wonderful results when this "fabric" is painted and stitched, so I had to try it.

The Thread Studio got some to me virtually overnight and I spent most of a very hot morning last week cutting it up into manageable pieces and painting it. Thought I would share some of the results. It would have been better if I had photographed them as they look fantastic in a colourful pile but this morning I am in a rush (to get to work) so I have just scanned them in colourways.

Hope you enjoy them - I'm looking forward to using them on some projects, especially fabric postcards..
