I've been canvassing...

Hello my friends!

I thought it was about time I made a little appearance here, before you got to the 'who, what, heh?' stage. Argh you're already there...?

I don't blame you, I'm there too. The whole summer's distant blur now, my mind's a little cloudy, but... I have been busy. There's been a little shift in my work.
I told you this is all about finding my feet. I sometimes wish I would find them a little quicker. I have looked, honest. I even found other people's. My dog was quite relieved when I pointed out his four.


This is what I've been up to... embracing the Autumn season by making my first little canvases. Let me introduce my little 'wind swirl'...

And 'foraging about'... because let's face it, what's better in the Autumn than foraging about picking blackberries, chestnut (to grill on the fire, ah that's the best!), and... mushrooms

Foraging about...

This little one is 'Grandma rose', inspired by my Grandma's plates (Mary, Mémé to us). I love the big flower patterns of old french country crockery. These are my two bestest plates, the others are rather tired and chipped sadly.
The top one is mine, the bottom Ade's. He decided it was so because he "can't eat from a plate with flowers". Pfff... men! ;)

PS: All three are now in my little shop, as well as some new hoops.
