Happy new year from the hills of Whitworth
I always thought I’d get through life without making a Christmas
dinner, but at 67 I’ve been caught out. Mum is 90 now and decided
she didn’t want to do it anymore. I’ve told my sister it’s her turn
next year or we are going out.
I had a lovely gift from goddaughter Amy, she is taking me
to Manchester Cathedral to see Swan Lake by candlelight.
Back in the studio I’m all tidied and ready for 2023 projects.
I’ll finish off stripping the cork wall in preparation this week.
A friend bought me a bag of assorted wool off cuts and a
metal frame to make a rag wreath
There’s new pens and a notebook for a Masterclass I’m
doing called Essence Of Identity.
One of the modules asked us to do a self portrait. I nearly
had kittens thinking I’d have to paint a picture of myself
On closer inspection, it actually meant to put together
images or objects that showed who I am.
So here’s my little vintage writing case filled with things
that represent what I’m drawn to creatively.
Hope everyone is well over at
It’s nice to be back. We’ve lots of plans for this year.
There’s a trip to the cinema to see the Whitney Houston story
this afternoon and a meal out with friends on Saturday.
Have a good week and thanks for visiting
