a hello from Cornwall

Just popping by to say hello.  I'll be catching up here in a couple of days.  A family visit followed by a mild recurrence of my illness (not connected lol) have had a slight impact on what I've been able to achieve in the last couple of weeks.  I've finished my samples for week 20 (glazes) and week 21 (embedding) for the Surface Treatment Workshop and have also started on week 22 (pours).  I just need to have a little photo session but here is an "in progress" shot from my phone ...

Meanwhile, talking of "pours" ... I found my neighbours' decorators' paint can rather interesting ...

and this lovely view started my day off beautifully this morning ... love that sky!

see you soon ... x

busy ... mizzly

We have a misty mizzly day in Cornwall today.  Heavy rain was forecast but it's brighter than suggested.  It wouldn't take that much for the sun to break through the thick white cloud cover.

I find myself with a luxurious three days of free time to work on my textiles and sketchbooks for the September exhibition.  I am also preparing new business cards for St. Ives Textiles and working on the invitation to our Private View.  There will be a new blog post on the St. Ives Textiles website to look forward to as well.

Also, playful work in my "circles" sketchbook and catching up with samples and experiments with the Surface Treatment Workshop project that I am doing with my sister Evelyn.

Over the weekend I will be working on some small stitched samples and weavings for my sketchbook and art cards.  A busy time always.

Please leave a comment and let me know you visited today.  I would love to hear what you are working on at the moment.
