Hello I am here and ought to visit more often

Been a bit slow this year. the head is still fuzzy from Christmas cold and cough but am beginning to emerge although not enamoured with inspiration or lack of. anyway i am proceeding with my vessels for a future exhibition 'Travellers Tales'.
ideas behind the work are based on people travelling, sparked by a project at work on repacking reticules and purses. something people would need on a journey would be money containers/bags/purses etc. i have expanded on this thinking of carriages and buses, people in the past probably had similar conversations to those nowadays.
'is there anything on the tele?'
 i am still not sure about these so it may all change but thinking about it so watch this space.
i have used crochet and knitting with some machine stitch grids, cross stitch and i have been plaiting my bus tickets as one does! the largest is about 10cm high

 to make matters even more intricate, after 30 years i have taken up lace making again! it is coming back but i have set myself a large task even though it is small.

  1. Your elements look beautiful Anne, so sensitive

  2. Good to see your 'tales' or tails and trails! My bobbin cushion came out before Christmas, I love the rhythm of lace making and how absorbing it is...I ended up taking prints from them onto clay paper.

    1. Another lace maker, great. Thanks Judith

  3. Think that's why I developed an interest in weaving, I had a dryad loom in my 20s but it was only after lacemaking in the 1990's that I started to get interested in tapestry weaving.
