This exhibition has it`s opening today. Last chance to view it so if you have missed it at other venues try to make it to Birnam. The café does excellent soup. I have 2 books on display.
First picking of the new season rhubarb.
Added chopped stem ginger and a spoonful of the syrup.
Cooked slowly in the oven. I love this with yogurt.
Help this is in danger of turning into a cookery blog.
Back to business.
Playing again with pastels and mono printing.
I liked these shapes when I visited Verdant Works. They hold the posts for the jute thread bobbins
The big wheel.
Quick drawings snatched at moments throughout the day. I need a whole free day to really develop some paperwork in depth but I have had fun and pastels are my new favourite.
More stitching for long coastal piece.
Scrim added over stitching. I had originally planned to keep the background neutral but have decided to colour it. Which colour is not yet clear.
Another visit to the front runner - house - decision made - fingers crossed I can secure it. Can`t bear to look at any more houses but Hey Ho I am not picking a colour scheme just yet. Don`t count ones chickens etc. I have never owned chickens so I ask everyone out there to send very positive vibes that this house is meant for me.
Hope you will look in next week.
