Day 4 - Alice in Annieland

So, what's up? What am I up to? What's the crack here at Limefield? The obvious really. I'm making 2.5 meter flowers out of silks. Just an average day I hear you twitter? Yup. Why? Because they're being commissioned by the Bury Rock for their first year anniversary fashion show. We've been cutting, hemming, painting, varnishing, wiring, laughing and rolling around in silk. Alice and Annie helped me on Saturday as I was pulling my hair out and wondering why I had said yes to so many overlapping projects! I had handmades going on in the back room, a giant pink chalk board going on in the kitchen and 6ft flowers happening in the living room whilst I was also designing the last T-shirt in the other porch. Total madness. There was a moment when the confusion really set in as we were all scratching our heads trying to work out how to get these giant flowers to stand up straight when after a long period of silence Annie said, 'Have you ever wondered why we only have 4 fingers and a thumb? I mean do't you think its weird and there should be five fingers?' We all rolled about laughing and then got on with it. So, there will be 3 giant flowers one orange, one red and one purple and there will be a few giant butterflies. It's going to be a beautiful fashion show! Will let you know when and where nearer the time. I wish you well. xxx
