Hi to all my readers! I am now on my holidays, so hopefully, within the next few days, I can put a tutorial/project for all to look at. If you have any suggestions for projects that you want to see executed, then please leave a comment below and I will try and see what I can do! xxxx

Here are the photos from Bath Abbey:
I could really imagine this design in lacework, perhaps in this gorgeous coffee stained colour.
This grate that I found in the abbey has a really lovely pattern that I could imagine as a piece of cut-work or as a piece of jewellery.
The thing that I love the most about churches, abbeys, cathedrals is the stained glass windows and here is a prime example. I could imagine using the colours as inspiration, the images as a print on a dress, or even as a patchwork:
Gorgeous lattice work that would be great as inspiration for broderie anglaise around a skirt hem or as a neckline.
This organ and the curtain surrounding it remind me of pleats on a skirt. It would be great to do a pleated skirt in a metallic colour, perhaps secured at the top in an ornate fashion not unlike the
wooden lattice work at the top of the organ.
I hope you've all enjoyed these photos! I went a bit trigger happy with the camera in Bath and Winchester and I just thought the architecture was so beautiful that I wanted to share it with all of you. The beautiful architecture has really inspired me so I hope that it does the same for all of you!
Hopefully I'll have a new project to post in the next few days. xxx

Here, I tried splattering black ink on the various papers to see which it would be most effective on:
For this sample, I used fabric backed book pages and pleated them:
The debris left over from my sewing!
