Ok, so I'm not very good at blogging on a regular basis.
But I am going to turn over a new leaf and have a more productive and creative 2014.
Over the last few days I have spent the odd hour here and there sorting out my scraps
random small pieces of cottons into...
2.5 inch strips, 2 inch strips, 1.5 inch strips, 2 inch and 2.5 inch squares, and larger pieces, ironed.
This is actually quite a long process, but very enjoyable and relaxing. Not much thinking.
I may just continue to do this every now and then over the next few weeks and months until I get to the bottom of the pile.
I also need to back and quilt Beth's quilt.
But what I really want to do is start some work based on nature, birds, the seaside.
Maybe start on some small pieces in print, or paint. I don't really know yet.
My head is full of images of sea birds, and footprints in the sand, berries on the trees, blackbirds.
On a totally different note, I got three new hens last week, after losing two in the last few months.
Lucy died in November and Honey died just after the New Year.
My new ladies are Ginger, above, Jessie and Ann.
