I had every intention of blogging more this week but every time I tried to upload photo's the children beat me to it for various reasons, mainly home work but also UTube and Facebook!
At this time of year it's difficult to be motivated when it's cold and dark, which is why I could quite happily hibernate.
Alternatively I just want to curl up with a good book or watch a feel good film.
Then I start feeling restless like I should be doing something like...cleaning, except I decide to go through my sketch books trying to find inspiration for a new project.
I had some sketches of a statue I did back in the summer and this became my starting point for my thread mask.
A face sculptured in thread, following the contours of the features like a map, the face becomes just a different type of landscape.
I also found time to do some work in my sketch book, just scribbling lots of small pictures, playing with different patterns and colours with oil pastels.
I'm hoping these will keep me busy with my threads well into the New Year!
P.S I have spent most of the afternoon watching feel good films and yes the house is a mess.
