Decisions made

One finished, well almost, two more to go or perhaps I will stick with one finished Seascape.

Here is the layout I settled on.
I used one of my seagull photographs and a piece of handmade paper.

Will insert into the frame after Christmas. A bit of measuring to get really straight.

Undecided which feather to use.
Travelling book with leaves sent on its way.

These bulbs were not planted in time for Christmas flowering.

They will be ready when the decorations are packed away so will help celebrate the lengthening of the days in January.
Can you spot the missing chocolate?

Wishing everyone a happy and peaceful festive season.

Moving pieces around

Still moving fabric around until I feel happy with the layout.

Which combination will I choose? I need to make a decision or I will continue to move pieces around.
Have been looking at Fibonacci theory 1,2,3,5,8.for proportions. Not sure if it is helping. Should I stick to what my eye tells me works?
Back from the framers.

Not being opened again until January 10th when they will be delivered for this exhibition.

Christmas tree up!!!!!!!!!!!

A set of lights, a gift from a friend, prompted me to put up this tiny tree.
Look in next week to see if I have managed a decision on the  placement of the fabric.

.A trip to the beach

A trip to the beach on a very cold day.

The sea has discarded this tangle of rope.

Another shell collection

Looking for shells which are disintegrating. Watch this space.

Painted background for a series of small seascapes

Have dyed lots of fabric blue. Moving the pieces around until I like the design.

This was the colour of the sky on the way home from the beach. Pink and purple not bright, very heavy  looking. Very very cold.

December and this summer flowering clematis is in flower.
Please look in next week to view what I have planned for disintegrating shells and if I get the Seascapes design right.
