This blog sorely needs an overhaul – when I look at it and see how much there is to update, I quail. I could start by posting something, a few bits and pieces to get started again. Just do it, or whatever it is they say.

Soooo…. I’ve been printing a bit on fabric, just playing around with techniques, trying out different blocks and having fun. The Tiree Tapestry Group (which is astonishingly almost a year old) is holding a simple printing workshop next weekend in the cattle market, and it’s in preparation for that. Who knew that the calyx of a tomato would print a starfish?

What else? I’ve been enjoying reading about this collaboration/exchange between Jane McKeating and Jilly Morris; it’s a fascinating insight into their processes, ideas and self-awareness.

And I’ve been thinking a lot – about how to carve out time for making, about continuing to learn, being committed. Reflecting. Seeking balance.

    Hear! Hear! glad to see you back Fiona and to know that you are still busy being creative. You have shamed me into getting my blog up-to-date. Rather neglected of late. I will try to do something about it this week.
