Sunday 26 January 2014


John is still in hospital.. I spend so much time driving in the dark and the rain. And I sit and we talk - today he didn't fall asleep, which was nice.. But he's still sick.
And I'm weary, weary..

Rust, ruin, and texture

Sunday - new quilt and new week. Life Goes On and On

I made this (New Morning Tiger) in between hospital visiting, looking after myself (rather badly , I find it hard to want to eat on my own) and running my business and trying to do a million other things.. John is improving, but not quickly, and I'm soooo tired..
This lovely thing is going to Paris, though, and the link takes you to a free downloadable version of the pattern
These are the New Oakshott Fabrics Colourshotts, and they are particularly fabulous to work with.. Just a bit heavier than the old weaves, and with a fantastic depth of colour.. But then, that's what we expect..

Saturday, Silk and Sinister Creatures

 Sinister Alienz at the Hospital, chattering amongst themselves..
And tonight's little experiment - pure silk trees in almost-no-colours

Friday, frowning and fretful..

 At the Sainsbury Centre Masterpieces Exhibition

Some are more serene

These are very ancient, full of life.. I feel they want out from the glass boxes..
