RRC Part 2

I have started working on the fabric that I have received from Diane. Her fabric is based on the continent of Australia/Oceania and her inspiration is this image


It is an image of a piece of rock art.
This is the piece of fabric I received.
I have decided to take the criss cross pattern on the legs as my quilting design and have marked it by hand with a bone marker not being too fussy as to wether the lines were straight and even as I thought that this would reflect the original image better. I purchased a variegated thread to do the quilting with.Details of thread and more pictures to follow.

Essex tattoo expo

We recently attended the very first Essex Tattoo expo organised in association with The Skin Sorcerer from Maldon. What a fantastic day. The sun shone and the crowds came. Car parking was a bit of an issue due to the unexpectedly large amount of people attending. There was some fantastic work being done and also on display . The best place ever for people watching. Hubby has been inspired to have his first tattoo done and it is in homage to our motorcycling hero Valentino Rossi. Photos to follow. Rossi obliged by winning the first round of this years MotoGP championship.
I am now planning tattoo number 3!
