well I just don't know

 
where August has gone, not to say this whole year...so many good things have been happening,so many challenges, not to mention menopauseal issues...hands up all those in the Menopause and Beyond Club as promoted by Dr Christian Northrup! I am a devoted fan...and busy reinventing myself...I embrace pleasure, fun and LIFE!


my regular walk along the road shows how the season is moving towards autumn, tho still green and lush, there is a feeling of fullness and overbloom...it is so beautiful to observe even the of tiniest changes day by day

there is a new smell and feel in the air, a stillness which I welcome after a hot, sunny and busy summer, the cool and calm of a new season, a fresh start as the return to school and my quiet studio days beckons... 

but first a fun and relaxing family holiday, so I leave you with a hint of autumn in summer...













have a wonderful week, the last of August so let's all make the most of it (guess a different seasonal change is happening across the globe!)

see you soon, maybe with tales of my blissful and exiting week at Leith School of Art...

it seems I haven't been here for a few weeks, not sure where I've been except in the land of busyness! Making for an exhibition entry and keeping up with the veg patch and...life stuff! So my apologies and here's a wee blog to 'put you on' as a dear friend says...it is SUMMER and I guess we all need to be enjoying the wonderful weather and get some Vitamin D and relaxation...I'm off next week to do some sketchbooking so will let you see what I get up to soon...can't wait!

Here's a little of my recent work, a bodice based around the idea of precious cloth being kept down the generations and used and re-used, seen as a valuable comodity rather than throw away as it seems we tend to do nowadays...inspired by a Vitorian black cape which belonged to my great grandmother...and somehow translated into an Elizabethan styled bodice...



 and the beginnings of my headpiece, dissolvable film and stitch...



I have to say I am pleased with the finished pieces...so just need to do the paperwork and send off my entry with fingers crossed, I have so enjoyed the making process and that to me is what it is all about, expressing my creativity...

have a lovely week
