Picking up the threads

After a break from work, I generally find it very helpful to pick up again briefly where I was comfortable and where things were seemingly almost complete.

These images, revisited from last year, are the result this time. I feel them to be the end of something rather than the beginning which may seem a strange way to begin the new year. However, manipulating the familiar, overlaying, cropping and working with opacity gets creative thoughts running again for me.

This time, as I look now, I've been surprised to realise that the post contains a busy and restless selection of images when presented all together. Perhaps it will seem less so when presented individually. I hope so.

On the other hand by being not very restful, maybe it will make a better lead into the new than I expected.

So now to venture into less familiar territory ... and a different colour palette and new work ...


  1. Well, since it's been snowing almost nonstop here for 3 days, I can't help but see the view out my windows, a peaceful winter scene. :-)

    1. How beautiful - inspiring weather for stitching and creating? Winters here are generally mild, damp and grey with little snow. This year so far has followed this rather depressing pattern. A (gentle) fall of snow lasting a few days would be very welcome!
      Stay safe ...

  2. oooo, i can see tulles layered, and metallics hiding under and crystal beads, and heavier couched threads in dark forest colours--i LOVE these!
