Blue Tree of Life

My second tree of life made for my daughter who likes blue and bees (because her name begins with B). It is fabric collage with  hand embroidery and measures approx. 20cm square. I’ve found focusing on trees very rewarding and I expect trees are going to figure in future experiments, but there are a few new ideas to explore as well.9BB9A022-59B4-47D7-A461-371531EF0066.jpeg

Oh to be in England…

My, I’m enjoying the early English spring time.  So I place my green-hatted lady here, like a child putting a pussy willow branch on the nature table, or a small boy putting a bit of lamb’s wool in his pocket.  Is being in the spring time a return to innocence for Salty Pinches one asks oneself?

Looking ahead to a darker part of the year, I’m pleased to mention that Littleborough Arts Festival will take place between 15-22 October this year (a different time of year than usual).  So, save the date if you can!

More about  that at the end of the summer.  For now, I’m taking a blogging break, to sew, to work on my ideas for the arts festival, and just, “to be in England now that Spring is  here”.
