|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
