Make it your own?

All those cups of coffee and a few walks in the lovely warm weather have had an effect! Not so much ‘blue sky’ thinking as green fields thinking.

All of which means that a Needs List for the Make it your Own class in September is now available and a start has been made on the worksheet. No fewer than three different (and exclusive) (and easy!) small projects have been decided on for you to choose from. In addition Chris has been hunting around in the depths of her desk and found lots of graph paper with all sorts of exciting grids for those who really do prefer to ‘make it their own’ and want to spend a day designing – who said ‘blocks’ had to be square? – there are polar grids and log grids and hexagons and diamonds and triangles and . . .  well, you’ll just have to come and see for yourselves (but one book said ‘perspective’ on the cover).

Of course ‘all’ we have to do now is make some samples and Blue Peters for the projects. . .  It’s bad enough when there is only one of them – but three?? At least it’s the summer and classes have come to an end for a few weeks so we can all catch our breath, do a bit of gardening and start making things for ourselves. Perhaps.

So to whet your appetites – here’s a snippet of some of Chris’s ‘doodled’ blocks made up (some of you may recognise this from Uttoxeter earlier this year).
