Spring Pictures


The feel of spring is in the air and the sun is out today.
We had a lovely walk yesterday and we came across these snowdrops.
This gives me the opportunity to share this picture with you from my sketch book of a woodland scene.
I also finished my orange tree picture, I have backed it with fabric and added the vintage ribbon.
Such a beautiful shade of blue.
Of course it could still be framed if you wished.
I hope to add it to etsy to see if there is any interest, if not I will have it for a summer art exhibition.
Lets hope we have some more spring sunshine to lift our spirits.

I do love sketch books. Some of my favourite embroiders (e.g. Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn) have sketch books which are works of art in themselves. Lovely stuff.

The sun has been out with us also today and yesterday.
The snow drops are so pretty and remind me of a place close by where they grow hundreds I must go back this year whilst they're still blooming. The picture from your sketch book is amazing and a wonderful study and your embroidery is just beauitful

Hope you get more sunshine to inspire you ~ Judy

I've just spent a very pleasant time perusing your blog. Your work is wonderful. I especially like your tree pieces ... felted brooches, drawing, and all.
