Be warned! I’ve got my saddo head on! Since coming back from Birmingham I haven’t had the same enthusiasm for blogging that I had before. This could be because the garden is a mess, it’s still raining so I can’t do anything and I have a pile of other things that desperately need doing. And so I don’t know what to write about!
At this time of the year I have to get ready for a new term of teaching and for that it is necessary to plan some advertising so that I actually get some students. Then I have to make samples so that we have something to make and finally I have to try and finish all the things I started this term! In my dreams I think!
As I have no pictures of the garden here are some things that the garden, when in flower, has inspired! It does have it’s uses!
I’m also inspired by the surrounding countryside including the sea and it’s environs. Here I have woven some hand dyed fabric and then appliqued and free machine stitched the seaweeds and fish etc onto it.
And last but not least a crazy quilt which is called Crazy About Autumn and showcases appliquéd leaves. It was all done in silks with hand embroidery and beadwork. I use leaves a lot in my work.
