Kaffe Fassett Exhibition in London visual colourfest
Highlight of this half term was a visit to London to this exhibition: Kaffe Fassett: a life in colour, 50 years of colourful painting, knitting, needlepoint and patchwork and quilting....
Over 200 photos so this is the first instalment... It was wonderful to see ''live'' so many of the pieces I had seen in his knitting and needlepoint books of the 1980's and 1990's. Shame it said '' do not touch'' everywhere though, as knitted textile especially cry out to be touched?
I loved these crocheted beanies encrusted with buttons, these I had not seen before.
I guessed these were designs for enamel bangles? Very Chinese some of these.
Sorry it's out of focus but such a twee miniature chair...
Installations and pillars designed by Sue Timney - of the design duo Timney and Fowler of whom I have some striking Grecian column curtain fabric - also from the 1980's.
Knitted in the lovely Rowan Summer Tweed: a lovely yarn and I must get mine out of the attic and crocheted up! Mine's sky blue...
I have so loved this chair in the 1980's, it inspired a grapes spectacle case I made in needlepoint.
SEE?Lots more of those funky hats, but can't imagine anyone wearing them?
Love these zigzag patterns and so eminently suited to a bit of machine knitting?
Hello and welcome to my homely world in a small Oxfordshire town in 2013.I am a full- time working mum.
Very proud of 2 gorgeous girls , a fabulous if very stubborn wire haired standard dachshund bitch and her daughter : the daughter takes after her dad so they are very different; a wonderful( well 99% of the time anyway) and long suffering husband.
This is to be my diary of events for a creative crafting sort of person with all the happenings that occur in this day and age in English family life.I am very much learning as I go along, my eldest is my first at all the things that occur in a young person's life as it's all very different from when I was a little girl and I did not grow up in England.
Totally obsessed with textiles and the making of things- anything!
My passion is to make things with yarn or fabric or thread : any textile crafts or beads too.
