A Happy March to you! Sunny but rather chilly here. So glad to see the start of a hopeful month (not a big fan of February), so time to start anew...... I hope the above mosaic gives some inspiration as we begin a new month and week. Many thanks always to the artists and photographers featured. Please click on links and discover more.
This morning I made a start on new embroidery - revving my sewing machine after some weeks of not stitching. Always a little apprehensive, how will the stitching go, who will turn up on the fabric? My stitched portraits are all improvised, as you may know. So, my hope is to have a small spring collection ready for my next shop update. I hope to share more with you.
Meanwhile, I am continuing to edit my new zine - the title is still not 100% printed in ink - so what can I tell you about it so far? It features poems + artwork. It follows on from previous zines in that the format is hand-size. It will be a limited edition. I'm exploring connections between visual art and writing.
I'm also working on smaller landscapes and portraits. So yes I am busy. And meanwhile by the kitchen door we have deep purple irises just flowering. I thought I had planted crocuses but I much prefer irises(though crocuses are lovely)....
Have a good start to your week.
