Landscape in Black and White

Today was a chance to experiment some more with black and white. First go to Cairns Sewing Centre and try to hire sewing machine for a few months - it's cheaper to buy one. Oh Dear.  Then it was time to plan out a number of transitions from black to white, or white to black. Also tried various combinations of black or white in the bobbin, and mixed up the black and/or white up top - changing the pattern gave different degrees of "grey" and transition.  Next it was weaving, cord making, ruching and couching the thread leftovers, plaiting different ratios of black and white plastic, fabric and film. Lastly, some dense zig-zag variations and a few black stars - nothing too deep and meaningful - just an interesting day of play.
