Gazing into space....

Lots of gazing into space this week. I could be accused of not doing anything but in fact I am working through ideas on what may be my next piece. Occasionally I jot something into my sketch book. An idea is definitely brewing and I am making preparatory moves.

I have worked out some proportions in my sketch book but I still needed to make a visual to confirm that proportions look okay. A simple newsprint cut out works just fine.

This is just one side only of the house image, it gets mirrored on the other side. I have sinced trimmed the left side (in reality the centre).

On another level I have, over the last few months been knitting a charity blanket from my own surplus knitting wools, and those donated by others. This finally got finished and I delivered it to the local Women's Refuge on Monday so that it can be passed on to a family in need. I have enjoyed working on this commitment as it is a pleasant thing to do while watching TV in the evenings, and in other relaxing moments. Years ago, in another life when I was doing embroidery, I always had some hand stitching to do, but not now and this is a very satisfying replacement.


  1. The charity blanket is wonderful; I'm sure it will provide a lot of comfort to someone.

  2. I agree: I need some handwork in the evenings when I finally sit down in front of the TV....or I will fall asleep! LOL Your blanket is very colorful!

    I'm eager to see how this next design of yours will progress.
