The new image of the flowers are a gift from some of my lovely students. The colours & flowers are so lovely that I wanted all of you to see them life size. Thank you ladiesHi, this was the view out of my studio window 2 nights ago. The cloud looks like a fist & the shading is so fabulous, I had to scramble about to get the camera in time to take this wonderful inspiring image.
Poppy Patch on their Grand opening day next Friday
I might paint over it afterwards, what do you think? leave a comment if you think its a good idea.
As well as funky, I also love traditional colour schemes & traditional techniques. This is somerset patchwork & is part of what I am teaching on Saturday at the new Poppy Patch venue. I am pleased with the piece as most somerset is circular when finished & I wanted a square piece
There were more images but blogger eat them up. I will leave them until the next post.
The ankle has healed up, thank goodness, can wear my red sandals again, yipee. I just love red shoes. I wonder why? Last night I watched a program on the telly called The 60's -The Beatles decade & it showed BIBA in Kensington. Wow took me back to wonderful times trying on feather boas & hats & scrimping up the pounds to buy a few items from the shop. It was such an experience. I was only 14 when I first went there & the girls all looked so fabulous, long blond hair & heavy eye makeup. I guess my makeup is still stuck there sometimes, but I don't tie my hair up with a ribbon now, unfortunately but hey I have the purple car & when I get older maybe I will be disgraceful with a purple ribbon in my hair. Ha, my kids would be horrified, wonder what my slightly odd husband might say??
I am demob happy if you have not already guessed. I have 8 weeks of no work except for 3 & a half days, I feel a bit like I am spinning around in the garden under a full moon (LYN) really I should tidy up the studio & be very practical & finish off all the half finished things & then do my planning for next term, but HA none of it, I am going to pig out on rubbish TV & faff about doing anything that I want which includes stitching, painting & designing items for the open studios in September. I need to design my four poster bed that was kindly made for me by Richard at Moulton (thank you again) My theme for Heritage is Elizabethan England the first & the second, because I am totally an Elizabethan. Watch this space for how I progress. I have the design book........ bye for now
