Current work in progress

I used a framework of withies, hessian strips and reclaimed copper wires.  The elements will be alligned with these as the work develops.

New Work

Have been working on a bit of free form crochet.  Here’s one result, a wee wall hanging with jute and shells.

AOS brown hanging


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.Connection

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.
