March catch up and invitation.

Busy, busy busy as we all seem to be, but here is a quick catch up on what's been going on…

On the 17th of February we celebrated our 35th wedding Anniversary with a casual get together with our friends.  Unfortunately my sister broke down on the M25 and had to be towed home so didn't make it.


 On Monday we are setting up at Art Van Go for Spectrum's exhibition.
I am a new member but have been invited to put in some of my work.

Hopefully there will be room for some of my cushions...



…and at long last I have finished this little piece.



Meanwhile I have been drawing goldfinches which we have lots of in our garden.

 And on my 'design wall' I have some hand dyed fabric and papers with an idea for an amaryllis inspired piece.  I want to do a bit of printing and stencilling before I begin.


I am coming to terms with the fact that I am a long term creator when it comes to finishing pieces, but that's fine. So this may be resolved next autumn!!

I spotted these two in the garden this afternoon - exploring the limitations of my phone camera, this is cropped quoted a bit, but the resolution is pretty good.
Shield bug and ladybird.

It would be lovely to see you at Art Van Go next Saturday for the Private View.  
Tea and cake will be served.
Otherwise, Art Van Go is always worth a visit so don't forget to pop into the exhibition while you're there.

Congratulations on your anniversary Jill. It's obvious from the photo that you two are very much 'a couple' and good to see the sofa get a second appearance modelling those divine cushions. They will sell without a doubt at the exhibition. Too far for the tea and cake but I shall be with you in spirit. Hope it's a success all round.

Have just come across your work from the Kempshalls blog and i just love your work. I will look forward to seeing more of your sketchbooks in further blogs. I undertook City and Guilds patchwork and Quilting to Diploma but its only since finishing i realize how important they are and i would love to produce a sketchbook of some note. Thank you for your inspiration, best wishes Liz x
