Ploughing on.......

Good Grief!!

Has it REALLY been THAT long since I posted here?!

Tellings-off on postcards please :-o

Don't know what it is lately...

...but I seem to have had soooooo much to do for various different projects...

...that the world of the internet hasn't had a look in!

I seem to get one thing done-and-dusted....

...then another thing pops up demanding attention.

More magazine projects - with their associated deadlines...

...workshop samples...

...and then a phone call letting me know what cruise journeys I will be making in 2015 and 16!

Exciting stuff! (More at a slightly later date though...Sorry!)

My workroom resembles a tip...

...and many bits are being worked on.

But all I can show today are some tree pieces for my Winter Solstice workshop at Arts Alive Crickhowell.

The first two have been printed and stitched
(Using a beautiful wooden block from Colouricious.)








...and these that have been done using a Markal Paint Stick through a stencil.
(Both from Colourcraft Ltd)





I'll be putting some backing/stabiliser on these and then doing some stitching I think......

Once these are done...

...I'll be excavating the small litho press and printing some lino-carved rune blocks onto watercolour paper....

...then printing some sheets for my workshops at the Knitting and Stitching Show at Harrogate....

This girl's work seems NEVER to be done!!

(More to show in a few days...)

Okay, these were worth waiting for -- marvelous in fact!! So excited for you. Its much better to be busy, busy, busy than sitting around with nothing to do.

Thanks so much Penny!

I'm excited for me too...

...and I can't imagine a time when I'll not be busy....certainly in the next few years anyway!

A winter solstice workshop sounds like fun! I love the block from Colouricious, and it looks beautiful with the beading.
