It has been a busy week with blue skies, coursework deadlines, days out, tea and cake and kittens.
Two days drawing and photographing with students at SOURCE run by the education dept at The Fitzwilliam Museum.
This is a superb resource available to all GCSE and A Level students (and enthusiastic younger siblings) who are preparing for exams.
Museum staff and visiting artists on hand with a supply of art materials to discuss ideas, offer advice and show how to
copy work in the style of Gerhard Richter…
A visit to Textiles In Focus at Cottenham Village College where I found more Crazy Zauberball at the Twist Yarns stand. Socks for birthday nephew in the pipeline.
And a laptop sleeve with an elephant for a daughter – maybe even including some gold thread.
Oh yes, and kittens. Otis and Perry, after 24 hours, are very much at home.
I have completed my picture card.
A 10 x 7cm free wheeling machine embroidery on canvas using Gutermann Thread and Acrylic paint.
‘Fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that’s what you do’
I wonder if I like the back more; an abstract jumble of muted colours.
Wishing you all love on the Feast of Saint Valentine.
Off to the post office for the second time this week!
Fox heading north west.
Once again dreaming of abandoning the day job… but then remember my procrastination habit. I have been told my focus needs more focus – this is true. I am optimistic.
The whole team ended up here this afternoon.
Not only a mighty fine view but the best bookshop for many miles
and a jolly good cup of coffee.
Meanwhile, when I am not being distracted…
I am thinking about hearts and kings and paint and stitches.
Did you notice that proper looking blog link! Thank you to my most patient technical support department.
