Being home

Winter is slowly turning into softer weather, the cold turning into blue skies.
And our walks are friendlier now, and covered in less clothes and scarfs and gloves and hats.
It is so good to see the green re-appear.
My brain is moving into lower gears, too.
Thank goodness.
I was nearing a melt down of sorts, with the speeds I was functioning.
And sleep has returned.
Glorious sleep.
For now I am just finding my feet, rearranging my thoughts and getting on with getting on.
Much happening in this year. And it all feels really really good.
It is good to move on
It is good to be home

I touched the thought of You
many a Dream a Go
{the little blue book of pondering}
Slowly returning to doing my thing.
Thanks for waiting for me

Rainy days

I am slowly getting back into drawing and illustrating. I simply have not had the time to sit and ponder as much as I like to ( and need to keep sane ) 
But when I do I keep compulsive cups of tea and coffee coming. For some odd reason sitting and sketching is not complete unless there is a steamy cup of brew right next to me. 
I suppose one can have worse addictions, so all is good. 
To make the perfect set up, I must have a bag of liquorice within reach. 

I know. I am not right. 
Happy rainy days to you, too!

It always makes me so happy to see how my cotton tapes are used by wonderful creative artists!

Zoe send me a photo of her advent calendar, using 2 of my cotton tape designs, and I think it looks beautiful!

If you have a minute do visit her lovely shop at Zoe Wright Textiles
Thank you so much for sharing x

... days fly by, and my hands can not keep up. I have paintings drying, and tapes to be rolled and wrapped and packed. Christmas shopping to be done. Many online shops to drool over. Stories to be read. Chatting to be done. Lunch to be made.  But I have found the solution to create calm...

... just add biscuits and tea to the chaos....

Windy weather

It is that windy weather kind of day. Where the clouds have a certain edge, and there seems to be a storm brewing right above the ocean. My kind of day. It makes my Northern soul happy. I am loving the seasons and coming home after having been wind swept along the way. Fingers slightly purple, unable to hold your cup and wanting a slice of toast with marmalade! Yep, that would be me. 
Being a coastal kind of person, the sea makes me happy.
Oooh there goes another seagull.... x

It is here I sit. It is here I wait. It is here where I am not absent.
And I will take action at just the right time. In the right way.

Lost letters

Finding old pages from old journals hidden in dusty boxes. (2003)
Makes me want to sit and write again. But for some odd reason Summer is for painting and writing 
is for Winter. Something to do with snuggly blankets and oval tine I think.
