Eranthis hyemalis

Took this photo yesterday when it was bright and sunny. Today rainy and grey but the memory of these little Spring beauties has kept me bright and cheerful.

This is the first Helleborus orientalis fully out in my garden. You do need to get down on all fours to be able to see the wonderful markings inside the petals of these flowers. The wind had moved this flowerhead so I only needed to crouch thus saving my knees

Beginning 2nd book in Field series. I plan to make 3. I will use the same size and format for each book. A stretch canvas 18+24 cm will be used for front and back covers, strengthened with gesso and it will have 7 pages.
I use my embellisher, I love my embellisher, to construct a background fabric which I will decorate with hand and machine stitching.

 Can you spot the difference? One has been washed over with fabric dye to unify the colours.

Next week I hope to have the covers finished and in place on the book and make a start on the pages.

With a little help from Orange Esmeralda I have managed to get this post out. Hopefully it will be easier and quicker next Sunday.
See you on Sunday 5.00 Be sure not to miss it.
Bye Bye

The Cycle Begins

Welcome. Thanks for looking in.
This is the 1st book in my Field series. It covered the farming year, Ploughing - Planting Feb/March and was based on tractor tyre marks.

The snowdrops are through all over my garden. They push through even the hard frozen soil, bringing HOPE that Spring is nearly upon us. I have the feeling of safely coming through the darkest months. Nov. Dec. Jan. Anticipating the rest of the Spring flowers knowing the garden is starting to come alive for another year

With much help from my friend Orange Esmeralda and much banging my computer, in frustration, from me I have the beginnings of a blog.
The plan is to post every Sunday at 5.00 p.m. British time.
I will be recording my years journey, using a variety of art materials and fabric, hopefully, to produce some finished textile work for exhibition.
I do hope you will look at Evergreen Mo on Sunday 22nd at 5.00 p.m.
Bye Bye
