imaginings and lost thoughts


I'm imagining I can find a little time to write here again
it's daunting to imagine I will ever catch up with everything
but the first step is to write something ...
I can't remember where I got to ... with blogging
thoughts are lost
it's time to start again ...

 life continues to be busy on all fronts ...
I continue to work on projects close to my heart
textiles, paintings, sketchbooks and photographic projects
and working on many new pieces for a show in November


over the months ...

many shells have been gathered
on inspiring beach walks
 many new hearts have been stitched ...
seaside stories sewn ...
many fabrics melted and textured
many tags made

many shimmery
beads have been lovingly created



there is so much that I would like to share
over the coming months ... bit by bit ...

I've had the honour to be invited to give interviews
to Textileartist.org and also Artizen Magazine
both of which I would love to share more about next time

and you may be interested to read of the inspiring art shows
visited and viewed both in St. Ives and London
and work that came from these shows

so many beautiful gifts received from and swapped
with some very inspiring creative artists and blog friends

old work ... new work ... work still in the making

and many interesting photos from the jar project
yes ... I'm having so much fun with that!
 it's almost the end of the summer holidays ...


I'm taking a bit of a break from other online places right now
to work on my show pieces, have a few quiet days with my hubby
in Torquay and write here on my blog ...


yes ... I've made a start today
I'm imagining it ... I'm dreaming it ...
and I thank you for visiting ♥

Gorgeous photos. I often get overwhelmed at all the things I must do or didn't get done. Then I remember how blessed I am for my talent and that I am my own boss. Life is good, as you have just shown so beautifully here.

Today is the last day of my summer holidays (before I go back to teaching tomorrow). We bought a little house on the coast to spend our summers in and it broke my heart to leave it and return to the city for the fall/winter/spring. Thanks for giving me a bit of extra summer!

One of your hearts is sitting over my fire place, and every time I look at it.. I feel calm and centred.

Thank you so much for sharing a picturesque view of the world.. It is good to remember there is one, when my window gets misted up and I have misplaced the cloth to wipe it clear.

Best wishes
Shani
