July, Already quickly time goes!
I'm still on with stitching the 2016 Moons. Still got some way to go. There will be an exhibition of them in September, as part of the Wakefield Artwalk.
Meantime; a kind of circle; if not quite a Moon.

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!!!

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

First of December

My tree won't be up for weeks yet; my decorations remain in the loft; I still have presents to buy.
Yet.......yet.......I'm glad to be in December.
This has got to go down as one of the most miserable and gloomy years in memory. I shall be well pleased to see it over. 
And over on FB people are moaning about xmas; and pish and tosh-ing all over. And yet.........this is the darkest time of the year; and leading to the solstice, where the light will shift. The year will turn. I like the lights we switch on, to lighten the darkness. Until my tree is up, I'll settle for lighting candles.
