Problem – soooo many pics that my backup external hard drive is getting perilously full.
Solution – a new hard drive to store just my photos (you thought I was going to have a massive cull didn’t you?}
Confession – did delete a few but not enough to create significant additional space!
Confession 2 – Magpie tendencies run in the family – my Sister, Mum and Dad developed this to Degree Level!
JOY – have discovered some of my early Spirograph Designs which led to the pieces I have been sharing with you
Problem 2 – more Spirography now added to my To Do List!
HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.
Finished Wire and Thread Spiral Wallhanging
My Foundation Diploma show developed from designs I made using a Spirograph and the wonderful discovery that ‘mistakes’ can be beautiful too. My Tutor, Lee, was pleased that I had finally broken my Virgo-led tendency towards perfection!
These versions are created using a range of string and twine.

Florence Inspired Skirt
Another of my favourite projects was based on a visit to Florence which was very inspirational. I fell in love with the amazing churches and based by Skirt project on the things I photographed and drew.
Also I discovered Reverse Applique – a technique which is still a favourite so you can be sure that in my future work I will be creating new Reverse Applique items, using my naturally-dyed fabrics and inspired by buildings and landscapes.
