I'm sorry for the missing week of posts. My chronic fatigue was bad last week (I won't go into the details!), which meant that I couldn't do much of anything so I decided to take a few days off.
I've been able to do a bit more over the last couple of days so I actually have something new to show you. I'm not going to be back on my regular, every other day, posting schedule for another few days, so I can have a couple of posts in hand. I'm also hoping to have more posts about other things rather than just about my own work. For example, my next post is about an exhibition of the work of two artists that's currently on at the Seagrass Gallery in West Kirby. I'll be going to the Vintage Fair at St. George's Hall next Saturday (27th May) and I'll visiting an exhibition on Japanese prints at the Lady Lever Art Gallery in the next few weeks too.
This blue one has grown in size considerable since I first started it, as I've added two further vintage cotton background pieces. There's still a lot of work left on this one (mainy of the pieces on the top half are unattached).
This one is much smaller. I've used a small vintage linen napkin as the background and used quite large, in comparison, patches. The centre embroidered flower is one of those that were given away with cigarettes many moons ago.
I'll be back on Monday with the Seagrass artists' post.
