I came back from Geneva yesterday where I've spent a few lovely days.
We had lovely weather most of the time but you can see the clouds coming in on the photo and it was very wet yesterday.
This was a metal sheet sculpture with a cut out of a singer, behind I've captured the lake, mountains and sky which looks like her dress. This was taken at Montreux at the top of Lake Geneva/Lake Leman.

Wee Folk

I bought myself a new book by Salley Mavor maker of wee folk. My friend and I had a go at making one following the instructions in the book. Mine is dressed in yellow and Helen's is in green. I made rather a mess of her face and some of the wrapped thread is untidy and she has very long arms - we didn't have the right size pipe cleaners. I stood her next to the large doll so you could get an idea of scale.

New Sketchbooks

I couldn't resist a good offer for a pile of sketchbooks. They'll keep me going for a while, eh?

The last Pages of Sketchbook 47

I've made this into a repeating pattern for fabric, it needs a little tweaking because it does not join up quite right.
