One skirt commission completed!
Take yards of Sari fabric, elephant trims, tassels, gold bells and fancy ribbons…..
We’ve had snow! Not enough to be really pretty but enough and the lawn is still covered in the white stuff.
Talking of the White Stuff I took myself to Edinburgh yesterday and this was my changing room in that said shop.
Fabulous idea! Like a trip to Narnia (favourite childhood books, I read the whole series).
In complete contrast to Northumberland Edinburgh was gloriously sunny all day.
Had forgotten how much I enjoy seeing the sun.
George Street is shopping heaven….
... Princess Street is shopping hell.
I popped into the Scottish National Portrait Gallery for lunch and to see the BP Portrait Awards.
Em, some were photographic (whats the point? take a photo), some were simply unflattering in the extreme, the occasional one captured the essence of the person(s).
You can see more here.
My favourite “Under the Clootie Tree” The expression on the child's face is priceless.
Under the Clootie Tree

Life is still in upheaval here and very stressful.
But always remember…..
It’s all we can do.
I’m still doing a #samewalkeveryweek and taking two photos each time, one on the way up the hill (good excuse to pause for a second)…..
….and one at the top of the hill before turning around and starting back home.
At the end equinox / solstice I’ll make a collage and hope to see the changing seasons.
I had an urge to get the water-soluble fabric and threads out to make my own sleeping hare.
One hour later I had a sleeping hare panel.
I should do much more of this work as I love painting with threads.
Now I’m going to have a think about what to do next, let this evolve organically into a small picture of the hare sleeping in his form (the name for a hares sleeping place - they don’t dig burrows like rabbits but sleep above ground).
