Sunshine and swallows

A beautiful sunny day - I'm off outside in a minute to do some crocheting in the sun! We have got a bluetit starting to make her nest in our new camera bird box, I am sooo excited!! This reminded me of some sketches I had done last year of baby swallows sitting on my washing line - today's project has been to stitch them up. Have posted a photo of one of the pictures - hope you like it!

Photo Response Project

My entry to the Photo Response Project.


This project is being organised by the Art House Co-op in Boston. There are a number of photos you can choose to respond to. I chose No. 5 which is of a door - I thought it looked a bit lonely so decided to send it a postcard to cheer it up!

Sketchbook pages


Back to sketchbook work this afternoon - more on my apple theme, painting and adding stitching to paper.



Had an exciting morning today - collected some work from the framers and it always feels a bit like Christmas when I am unwrapping them. Have got all the lovely newly framed pieces hung on the walls where they look fab!

I signed up to the Photo Response Project from the Art House Co-op yesterday - they are always running fun and exciting challenges along with their yearly Sketchbook Project. Have to send my piece of work to them by the end of April - better get my thinking cap on!

Embroidered panel

Today has been quite busy in the studio - spring cleaning this morning and having a bit of a rearrange of pictures and quilts. This afternoon I have been embroidering this panel - it represents the detail on a moths wing. Just need to finish it off with some hand stitching to add some more detail.
