Paula’s Black and White Sunday, Timeless

Timeless: eternal, everlasting, perpetual, unchanging, unaffected by time or changing fashion.

Timeless is Paula’s theme for Black and White Sunday, and this is my entry.

Revealing Morris

I didn’t plan to be mysterious yesterday, just wordless! My picture was of a wooden block made for William Morris prints such as this one. Morris aNot a very good image I’m afraid. Here some more wooden blocks.

I was especially interested because I’ve recently had a dabble at block printing onto fabric, very basic but fun.  I also saw this lovely tiled panel, I can never resist blue tiles.

This sums up Morris’s take on design.

Cool eh?

You can learn more on the Morris website, the company is still creating gorgeous traditional design.
