Finally, I'm back on line... Hello to all. I hope you haven't given up on me..

'We sail together'
 
'Stargazing'
'Sailors and dancers'

And some important news...Drum Roll please... 

I've been invited to join an arts Co-op called Fannie & Fox it's an amazing little gallery in Penryn just 2 train stops, a short drive or a very long walk from where I live. Made up of 8 inspiring women artists who believe in what they do. So how could I say no.. 
I can't tell you how excited I am about joining. I am aiming over the next couple of weeks to start a new blog about my adventures with Fannie & Fox, so watch this space for a link..

Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!!!

I went to bed early on Friday and took my note book and pen.. Stupid woman that I am fell asleep with the lid off and black ink permanently stained my lovely cotton bedlinen. How I muttered... And some. Even more muttering after I'd washed them.. What a mess!!
So with India flint in mind I patched over the black ink.. The duvet was too big to maneuver on the machine so hand sewing it had to be..
I might even try dyeing them at a later date, with the help of my daughter and one of her amazing books.
 
Two hours work and I love my patched duvet.. I love the rough edges and my uneven sewing.. Best of all I love the way it's crinkled.. More patching on the way I think..
