Frog, Funeral and Friends

Its been a mixed-up few days with the loss of an Art School buddy acting as the catalyst to bring us all together one more time. We have all vowed to keep in touch more, I hope we can but we shall see…

I’ve made progress in the garden despite not being able to bend down, friends have helped and I am caught up with the season again.

There are peas to be planted today and tomatoes to be potted and the dye seeds arrived in Thursday’s post.

I made time this morning to find my frog and catch her before she slid into the green depths of her amphibian day.

My dragon went backwards, I unpicked a large area I was not happy with. I felt that the stitching should more closely follow the warp and weft of the cloth. My first attempt had gone ‘wonky’ which I didn’t like. I straightened everything and it is much prettier now. The blue wing is not perfect, but it was my first ever attempt at this technique, so it stays, to demonstrate how much I am learning as I go.

The reproduction Egyptian Vexillum is finished.
