Spring Sunshine and Wet Earth

I have just returned form a wonderful few days in the Netherlands full of bright sunshine. Great to see sun in the last few months of downpours.

 I forgot my sketchbook, shame on me, but made one with paper kindly donated by students and managed to fill it! I call it my 'waiting drawings' sketchbook, as sketches were made while waiting for cakes and coffee, or a train or filling time while trying to get to sleep. Come to think of it, an awful lot of them were done whilst preparing to eat it seems!

I am exhibiting in the Netherlands later in the Autumn/Winter at the Lace Museum and am so excited and came home with lots of lace scraps.

Meanwhile, I have been working on pieces for my exhibition Places, Spaces and Traces at the European Patchwork Meeting in Alsace in September. Below is a detail 'Alphabet' from a new series '40 Yards'
You can get involved  beforehand with Tea Flora Tales as it grows which forms part a the collaboration within the  exhibition.( I will post more details when the information is live on the EPM website in March). 

Here are some contributions from my Dutch friends made while teaching at Zijdelings
