April Moon 2016

The completed April Moon, 2016. 
This one has a lot of stitches on it; and various silks that came from a fabric sample book: re-purposed silk. I've been making sketches of the stitching I've done on each Moon. My idea is to make a drawing of all 12 moons, which I'll get made into a giclee print. And sell. A small print; affordable. Ready for September, when the textile works will be exhibited. I am stitching........and gardening......and working......

September Moon

The pinned September Moon, for 2016.
Now stitched and completed.
I've spent a lot of time stitching the October Moon; which I based on a Georgia O'Keeffe painting, after my visit to the Tate's exhibition. A LOT of stitching!!!

A drawing from my visit to Malta, in 2009.
Meantime; I'm still stitching away on the textile pieces from last years full moons. And outside, is cold, and the possiblity of snow.

2017...........oh dear.......

Well; not a great start to the year, really, is it. Things feel rather unstable. I've been spending time in my garden; trying to clear it, ready for the coming Spring. We gotta have faith. A garden is faith in the future. So time in the garden is my way of holding on. Keep breathing. X
