I’m back!

Hello! I’m sorry I’ve been away so long, but I’m back, and with a new look to my blog. It’s been a year, actually a year and a bit, so I thought I’d start by giving you a bit of overview of the last 12 months or so.

The biggest thing that happened, and probably the main cause for my lack of blogging,  was that we moved. This turned into a long and protracted event, but we are finally well settled. The colour of my world has changed, and it’s lovely and very inspiring here.

It almost looks like Scotland but it’s Sri Lanka! Along with this view I also have lots of flora and fauna to entertain and inspire, including giant squirrels which I love.

My design plans went rather quiet last year, with a couple of plans collapsing and possible opportunities coming to nothing, However, I did keep drawing and painting and I did an excellent course with Sherry London called No-Fail Seamless Repeats, which was fun but also made Photoshop seem less of a monster lurking in my computer.

A fair bit of indigo dyeing has been done as well. The circular indigo is a digitalised indigo pattern from a scanned piece of cloth, and very exciting to make.

Some exploring has been done, though not by everyone!

 

I’ll be back again soon!
