New Banner

I decided the time was nigh to make myself a striking banner to use when I’m out and about. I need something that would last and take the bad weather that we have to put up with sometimes so this is what I came up with.

Made from a felted blanket, a felted scarf, some buttons and silk thread (hand spun of course).

It can be pinned to my table cloth!

I’m still waiting to see the latest Hockney exhibition but I did get to peruse the beautiful book that accompanies the show. All those amazing colours, spectacular! I just had to paint my interpretation!
Took a while to prepare the colours-
