Oh, yes, it has been too long since we last talked! All I can say is, no excuses, I have been in "lockdown" working on my new big project, getting ready for Australian Quilt Market!
My new project involves A LOT of stitchery which I have been loving. It also means lots of time to catch up on all those t.v. programs and movies and, one of my favourites, art documentaries, while sitting and stitching. One of those art shows got me thinking about self portraits.
Here's my version:
To me this represents who I am because a.) I am hiding behind my camera. b.) It shows my red glasses. c.) It exposes all my (almost 40) wrinkles which I love because it shows all the lessons learned in that time and life's experiences. d.) my hair which I have learned to love inspite of the fact that I cannot control it!
Anyway, I'm sharing this because maybe you'd like to have a go at a self portrait or just think about the things that represent you and where you are in your life now (love you to share and leave a comment)!
So, apart from that, I simply have not been able to keep away from my sunny little greenhouse:
Spring is bountiful and inspirational too:
Everyday you can see the seedlings growing at this time of year:
My entire garden is full of inspiration:
I am really looking forward to this because last time we went was a wonderful adventure that I really enjoyed. Stay tuned for photos when I return!
