It has not been the best week weather wise, but this morning the sun was out and so it was time to play with paint!
I thought my palette was arbitrary but as I pondering the Columbine that has sprouted in the garden I think maybe I was being influenced. These self seeding flowers seem to bloom in different shades every year but they are part of my carefully planned self seeded garden each year and I love them for that ;)
Last week I was spending time with the Macclesfield branch of the Embroiderers Guild (sorry no photos. I was too busy yakking!)
After spending a night with my lovely mother in law who conveniently lives in the middle if the country, I did a little detour and visited Bilston Craft Gallery to see The Liberated Quilt exhibition from Through Our Hands .
If you can make it then I recommend it. All of the work was outstanding but it was especially thrilling for me to see pieces by the artists Deidre Adams and Susan Lenz whose work I have admired on the internet for many years.
You might like this screenshot of an Etsy treasury that I put together the other evening. I noticed that I has been faving a lot of textile pieces that had houses, so I searched out a few more. If you are interested in looking a bit closer follow this link.
Hope you are having a creative week!
I am off to do some ironing.
