collaboration with discarded flowers



yesterday on the bike road home from a very emotionally challenging trip to the kindergarten i stopped and asked a lady who was cutting the pansies back if i could have her 'rubbish'.




i had seen what
india flint had made and i fell in love with textiles again.
patterns dont excite me like they used to.if i was to do textile design again i think i would find it really difficult.but to stain and colour cloth, thats joy.





who knows what i will do with them or how permanent they but i did just really enjoy the process.and as they fade and change maybe back to white silk i think that is just part of their magic.

wowee
this is such a lovely post!
there's something wrong with the word 'designer', hey? it just doesn't sound playful enough...
i like 'maker' better.
