And she's off ...
Who is that old lady with the wrinkly hands? She keeps getting in my pictures.
Anyway, I hand-printed my first length of calico today.
I cut a very simple stamp, as today's endeavour was really just a look-see. I had no idea about how the paint worked, and it took a few rows to find out how much paint to mix up, and how to make sure the stamp had enough colour on it.
It was addictive. So much fun.
And as I was doing this one, my head was spinning with ideas for better, brighter, bolder patterns.

This one's very, very simple, but I am really pleased with how it worked out.
