We have had some fantastic weather this week - oh, how I love the sun and warmth!  Clearly the flowers do too - this time of year everything is looking so vibrant and joyous....and this definitely affects my creativity!!  (by the way this weaving is going to be a coat!)  I have thoroughly enjoyed taking a loom outside....there is something really special about calmly weaving whilst listening to the birds chirping and having a lovely breeze blowing.  It sounds idyllic I know.  Ok so we can hear some traffic, some aeroplanes and some neighbours but I tend to screen them out!!  The other news of the week is that my first batch of books has completely sold out , so I am now awaiting a re-print.  I can't really believe what a positive response I have had.....I-ve been on quite a whirl...with other thoughts and ideas buzzing around in my head.  I am finally planning to give up my part-time work, and I now would like to concentrate on my textiles.  It does feel rather self-indulgent, but maybe at my ripe old age I deserve it!!??  Anyway I shall see how the next fe months go, but I am looking forward to immersing myself in my passion.  Have a good week everybody - and thank you for the lovely comments. x

  1. You know I'm not surprised you're having to go to a re-print - congratulations!!
    So, you will now be able to devote more time to textiles, so pleased for you and it will be interesting to see what your future brings with this new venture.
    Your current weaving is looking glorious, love the pop of bright lime green in there.
