|From a card I made
|And another card I made I now find inspiring
|Giant flower seen on my walk
|Hollyhock time. How do they grow in the dirt next to walls?
|The Chiltern hills where one of my daughters lives
I've come home inspired to start making again and to sort out my craft materials ready for my next project which, hopefully will be jewellery!
I saw the giant flower on my walk yesterday and immediately was reminded of Georgia O'Keefe's paintings of flowers. It was honestly the size of a dinner plate.
When I looked through old photos of things I made in the past these two scraps from my cards caught my eye. I want to do more combining embroidery with papers. But first I have housework to catch up on after time away.
I hope you are staying well and feeling reasonably optimistic. It's hard when things feel vague and we don't know what the future holds for any of us. I find it helps to talk to friends and family and to get outside into the fresh air as much as possible. Take care. X
