a big day/week in many ways ....

ink/acrylic on card mat
1 ** treasures rising (ballet book 1948)
2*treasures rising(vintage broaches)
3**treasures rising (red metal kitten bin/vase)

I am wildly distacted from my work as my eldest daughter became 18 today and youngest 11 last week and as you know life can be kind of busy with all these occasions !
I am really enjoying the feedback on my work at my market stall and of course glad of the sales too . My alchemy cardigans are really loved and every time I make one they sell magic/alchemy.
On the down side , my sewing machine is breaking my heart ,refusing to work when and if it pleases,so its hand sewing all the way from now on.........
I am pleased with how my beermats turned out and I look forward to seeing the installation curated by sweetheart ian wieczorek next week at the westport arts festival.
Do you remember my part in the group show INVITED there last year in the abandoned 1930's garage.
I was at the carboot sale on sunday and treasures rose to meet me at every turn (delighted)
I wish all my readers/friends a great week :)

my new coat (on the bog ..where I like to be)

just back from one of my favourite activities ...walking with my two dogs around the bog near where I live.It takes about an hour , depending on how long I stay down gives me so much.

**I am going to see the new film of jane eyre tonight ...yipee!

**I was so happy to see that the maverick soul mark petty has been busy making some new clothes for himself ,what a star,another highlight from my best ever favourite blog spitalfields life.

finding my way in the between light

I am looking and finding my way ,yesterday I drew a woman dressed as a horse with another woman turning into a swan with a hare jumping over the moon in the background .....AND I wanted to show you but .....its not quite there yet.....
maybe tommorow , I feel so full of ideas and am so happy to get some of them down on paper , even humble scetches.
I am also making some lovely upcycled clothes which I will post images of tommorow .

green nail varnish,a horse ring a swan ring , ruminating and whatnot .....

....whenever I have stuff to do ...I simply cannot do it !
so instead I have spent the morning walking around in the rain and sun on the lovely bog with my dogs enjoying the time on my own now my dears are all back at school 1 2 & 3 deers.
Then as you do ,I painted my nails green and photographed my two new rings for my blog as I am so shallow !
I am actually thrilled with my new rings and green nail polish.
I have also been very busy catching the last rays of sunlight before it goes on its holidays and makes me sad :(
Yesterday I spied sun on my outside yellow table between rain and grey and I actually photographed it , like a stalker !

I am not sure what the next chapter will bring but I feel it maybe very good.

love the colours of the tobias brothers work here
also love what these artists greedy hen are up to
