A Gemini

I have been on leave for a few days for my birthday. Most days have been sunny; on a very hot day I decided to make another felt bag to prove to myself that I could complete it without the tutor standing over me. It was hard work but I made the bag without the fastening in a morning,


I visited the Windsor embroidery show and particularly enjoyed the Diploma textile work; once again it made me aware that I really need to be more disciplined ,to draw more and to start with an idea rather than a technique, but being a Gemini I have a good excuse for getting so easily distracted.

We briefly visited the National Gallery on Friday on the way to lunch with my very busy son. It was amazing to stand so close to Van Gogh's Sunflowers and to really see the texture in the layers of paint.
