Many apologies to any one who has got this far and is thinking, why hasn't she updated her blog for ages.
It's been a VERY busy year so far, but unfortunately, not busy art wise.
I was away on a 7 week cruise before Christmas, seeing some gorgeous places, Cuba, Mexico, Columbia and
several Caribbean islands, a wonderful experience. Then of course Christmas.
My daughter and her partner have just got engaged, so she and I have been shopping for wedding
dresses, and although the nuptials do not take place till next year, it's been a bit fraught.
We have had renovations going on in our house, which involved all the kitchen
and glass house flooring being replaced with flagstones, so ALL my equipment and art stuff had to go into storage. I've only just got back to normal
I joined the committee
of my embroiderer's guild and have designed a web site for them, along with my partner in crime, Mary. If you haven't seen this on my home page it's www.eastsurreyembroiderersguild.btck.co.uk
I have attended a brilliant workshop run by Carol Waddle, Colour with Design in Mind. This has started me off on another exciting textile adventure. I am halfway through a piece of work based on a landscape that I have turned into trees!!!
It's been too cold and horrible for me to feel like going into my garden studio, so lots going on in the glass house.
