This is Ros who made a stunning bedcover from many pieces of felt. I am sure she has forgotten the many hours of rolling and the aches and pains following it! I must say it was even more beautiful to see it for real though - and yes she is sleeping under it this winter!

I just love the one soaring at the top
Funny how the slightest change in positioning the eye makes such a difference to the attitude and character

A bag and little purse created on Day 1

I have been having a lot of fun creating some little felt landscapes.
They are about 7-8" square and also have a little hand embroidery on them. Funny how you have fun with one technique or idea and all of a sudden a whole new series of work is born.
It is a magic feeling when this happens to me. Thinking about it, it is nothing that you can manufacture - you can't force an idea - it seems to steal upon you and voila!
A grand new set of images to explore. I would appreciate any feedback on these little pieces.
You can see them all at www.frostfair.etsy.com
I think I will be doing some large scale work with this theme. I don't normally do landscapes very well - so here's hoping!

I really had the best time - tubes of paint everywhere, about 5 palettes of different colours, sponges, brushes and I just
The equipment I had used in the past all came out and had a go. Getting inspired for this stuff is really easy. Shapes are all around us.
The thing that I find challenging, is knowing where and when to stop. I tend to over coordinate and consciously try to avoid this in any piece of work I tackle. Having the courage to throw in a completely seemingly unrelated colour often works wonders.
I will certainly be painting again soon - I just need another Easter type scenario - ie 4 clear days to work uninterrupted!

Here you will find good music, good coffee and lots of stash to
make art with.
I am very lucky - the studio is under the house and stays warm in winter and takes quite a long time to get hot in
Summer. There are 2 smallish windows one that looks out onto the garden - currently very neglected - and one
that looks onto a grey wall. On this side I installed glass bricks which are fab. Light without the ugly view.
Before I had this space it was a dark storage area. I can hardly remember those days now. I spent very little money on it - just the window, waterproof carpet, bit of paint and
cork for the walls. Oh yes and the plumbing - of course the
biggest bill and apart from the tap you can't see a thing.
All the furniture is recycled stuff from the house. I even have
the first wardrobe I had as a baby.
