Ideas And Fish Pie

I’ve been thinking a lot since the lockdown started about doing some artwork based around the Covid19 virus and the way our lives have changed. But I’m not someone who can force it and it’s had to mull around inside for a while and now the ideas are creeping out from wherever they come from.

I had a spare cotton sheet hanging around, I bought the wrong size and I’ve been wondering what to do with it since. It’s a fitted sheet so I cut off the elasticated bits – they’re useful – and then cut a number of rectangles, 15 x 22 cms. The next stage is to carve a small lino block …… tomorrow probably …..

And I made a classic fish pie for tea. Proper comfort food. Suits the times we’re living in. There’s enough left over for tomorrow too. I love eating leftovers – waste not, want not as my Nana used to say xxx

    What a beautiful old machine! I assume it operates by hand crank. I think that would be tricky to get used to, sort of like patting your head and rubbing your tummy at the same time! I recently acquired an old Singer treadle machine built in 1926. Its decals are a bit worn but it works smoothly (after a bit of restoration). I’m used to pressing an electric foot pedal, but practicing my treadling 🙂
    Looking forward to seeing where this goes, Rosie!
    Stay busy and healthy.

      Hi Mary, lovely to hear from you. I learnt on a hand operated machine and I’ve been using this one for so long that it’s second nature for me. I’d love to see a photo of your treadle machine xx
