A new hobby

All I need is another hobby.  Yes, more equipment to be stored in the spare wardrobe and new UFOs to leave in my wake.  But I have to say that I love the look of hand printed fabric and over the years have done a couple of screen printing courses and really enjoyed them.  But I've never got around to buying any equipment and the time required to set up and clean up seemed a bit daunting to do any printing at home.  So when the opportunity came up to do a hand printing workshop using carved stamps with Leslie from Maze & Vale textiles, I thought that this would be a more viable option and was very quick to sign up.  So with 7 lovely ladies from Melbourne Modern Quilt Guild Inc. we carved stamps, printed on fabric and had a wonderful time.  This is really quick, easy and effective way to get a gorgeous result and the girls really came up with some great designs.  Now I'm looking forward to getting my supplies in so that I can continue on with this addictive, simple and portable hobby.  Thank you Leslie for a fun and instructive session.
