Peace of Mind creation 悠悠創作路

 Peace of mind..... how he loves it and how I love it too - the cutie little thing!
I like hand making.
 Corner of the rural studio with lots of my handmade stuff.
 I like my santuary in the village.  Sometimes I do shooting then out for biking.
 This is the "newly discovered" route up to the hill.
 Lined with tall grasses and rough but I managed.

 Down is the flat land
 Back home with lots of rosella the farmer gave me
Made jam, drink and prints on fabric. 

   Jam with own drawn label for a friend
 Yesterday I spent a day in NGO St. James' Creation for the sharing of eco printing. When I saw these cutie little things I almost fell in love with all.  While the bundles of fabrics were in boiling we played weaving. 

While I shared the basic skills of eco printing, Fiona taught me the making of figurine weaving with yarns. 

 It's interesting to do and so adorable
After making I took it to my studio for the shots. You will see how lovely it is in my area.

  We used mainly with eucalyptus and rose leaves.
Rose petals were tried.  That's good to know what prints best.

Cinera eucalyptus is very strong and bold with iron mordant.

Rose leaves and onion skins with shades of iron mordant

Tie dye of eucalyptus for the chiffon scarf
Fun to play eco printing.  Basic is easy for silk just with iron mordant.  You may find my ETSY tutorial is good ref.

Simple carefree cape/wrap in town and rural 隨意被肩製作

 A carefree cape (or wrap) just made with lambskin and own natural printed fabric. Simple style to wear in town and rural
Leisure riding in the village in cool day
That's the most simple wear I have done.  Last week when I passed by a leather shop I picked this lamb skin.  Very soft and thin as paper.  A good price less than a euro.  Thought to make a leather purse but just don't want to cut it off.  
 Sewed the shoulder lines with own natural printed fabric......
This is eco printed polar fleece with oxalis discharge prints
Simply a carefree wrap/cape of two different materials
Indeed I've also done a piece of curtain prints with discharge pattern as the wrap.
Just like the gray and white simple tone.  After shots in my rural studio I went biking in the nearby villages. 
 This area is called Kam Tin, in the west New Territories with some typical old villages/houses.
 The lane blocked by trunks last month due to super typhoon just cleared.
 I rided to the alley lined with a few shops.
 Stopped by this one with lots of handmade dainty items and chatted with the owner
 Motto of "printing transfer" the shop owner Miss Leung made
 I like the wax print of carriage
Bough a second hand book for my upcoming travel
 A path leading to a village
 Then crossed the bridge
 Students autumn activities

A short walk in the area to view the study halls of older days
Typical doors of buildings
The villages called Shui Tau Tsuen (水頭村)  and Shui Mei Tsuen (水尾村)

Such good views with undulating mountains and fish ponds.

 Grasses are just too beautiful

A nice place for leisure riding

Hong Kong is a small spot.  Just a stone's throw away I am back to town in the financial centre.
