jodi's rose

My pal, Jodi, brought me a rose about a month ago
Yesterday, she took this photo of it - dried and gorgeous.
I was amazed at how long it lasted and that, in the drying process, it has found even more beauty.

Have a beautiful day....  xo

A weekend at wonderful West Dean

Hello girls

Have just had a wonderful weekend at West Dean with Janet Bolton - a friend of Julie's, making fabric pictures

At the end mine somehow turned into pictures which I can use as a home for some of my lovely Julie brooches

Bag Lady

Last September I set myself a mad target of of making 20 bags and they all had to be different. To date I am on number 18. For some fool reason I also decided to put them in our Local Artists Walkabout here in Bath in May and the local Fruit and Veg shop has very kindly leant me their premises for the day, so if your in Bath feel free to see "the bag lady" show on May 7th for some witty stitching and violet cupcakes.

Tulips in Spring

It's that time of year. Gathering in my tulips and taking pictures and thinking of Winifried Nicholson and wishing I could paint just like her.
