My most recent artwork – for sale at Hallgreen Castle.
Princess of the Night
She used to be an iron horse twenty years ago
Used to bring the mail to me through the ice and snow
I sat alone and watched her steaming through the night
Ninety tons of thunder riding up the sky
She was the Princess of the Night
We saw the writing on the wall
She was the Princess of the Night
I’d take a ride across the sky, sky, sky, sky
Inspired by lyrics from Saxon
It’s getting nearer every day! As a member of the Mavericks Art Group I will be at Hallgreen Castle on Saturday, 9th, Saturday 16th, and Sunday 17th, exhibiting my work and giving demonstrations of crochet.
There is also a huge amount of delightful work by other artists and more demonstrations.

“A Castle in the Air” – A magnificent dream of the middle ages as they might have been but never were
Hi Everybody. This year has started quiet. I have been happily working away at new pieces of crochet work.
Meantime, my trusty computer friend had been quietly languishing in the Pooter Hospital 😦 awaiting a delicate operation “upgrading the hard drive”
I did not realise how much I depend on it till it isn’t here! I am without the technology to upload new photographs from my camera until at least next week. In the meantime here is a photograph of an older piece of work “Connections” whilst on display at Hallgreen Castle.
This work was inspired by my favourite tree, a dead coppiced elm in the Nature Reserve at Kinnordy. “Dead wood” is such an important item in a natural woodland, providing food, homes and shelter for many living things, and without it so much is lost from the natural environment. There is just so much life around this “dead” tree.
Great exhibition at Hallgreen Castle as part of NEOS – thanks to all who visited and who took part 🙂
I have just spent two weeks recharging my batteries and getting inspired down in the Borders amongst some beautiful flowers and greenery. Now have the basis for a new series of work, good timing with NEOS just round the corner. Watch this space!!
