I'm just taking a break between moving various things back into the spare bedroom after having it decorated. No time for pics today but hope to have a Christmas Rose - Helleborus Niger - to show you tomorrow.
There is a growing pile of boxes in the hall under the stairs for my husband to take to the charity shop and I just hope he doesn't want to go through them to see what I am throwing out and thus weaken my resolve to get rid of stuff! None of it belongs to him, I hasten to add.
I think I have made a belated New Year Resolution! I get so much enjoyment from reading other people's blogs and seeing the lovely pieces of work they do and I want to try every technique myself. This is impossible, there just aren't enough hours in the day for me to do that, or find room for even more materials and media. So I have resolved to carry on enjoying looking at the work of others but buckle to and work in my own way . I've always been aware of having a 'butterfly' approach to textiles but there is so much to learn and always new things to try out. I shall still use techniques discovered by others of course, but maybe at last I am ready to settle down and follow my own path. It's taken me long enough - I don't know about being old and wise, some of us are just old!! Perhaps as I declutter parts of our house, I am decluttering my brain too - I do hope so.
Thursday - This afternoon we played ukuleles for a group in Richmond - these were people with forms of dementia and it was a pleasure to play for them and their carer...
