I have finally finished the 'INUKSHUK', and completed another small panel of colours, textures and found objects for my 4yr. old granddaughter, and designed a half dozen Christmas cards for next year (finally ! I am on top of that job !) and have finished a rough sketch that I am satisfied with for a free-motion machine embroidered portrait !
Having 2 weeks alone, house-sitting, has enabled me to wind down and focus strictly on some art.
My new sewing room/studio is completely ready for new work and I can hardly wait for spring days where I can open the windows there and take in the smells and sounds of warm spring days.
