I've been playing with paper again, and my love of folk art continues! I like to break things up a bit by experimenting and playing with materials and techniques while working on various projects, and do bits of everything rather than spending the whole day at one piece, I get so anxious I'll run out of time and I really need to get out of that habit, it comes from college deadlines I think. I'm working from home and on my own initiative now and I'm really enjoying it. Got Mam to show me how to use the sewing machine at the weekend and we got on well, she's a good teacher and I finally got over the phobia of putting the needle through my finger. Me and old machiney aren't getting on too badly and I managed to sew two of my Halloween dolls! I've got the cat and the ghostie done so far, I've got two witches left to sew and I can work on painting and finishing them then so hopefully I'll have them to post at the weekend. I'm still working on the cards, ideas for the zines (which I'm anxious to start on) and working out the children's book ideas and sketches, I've also got ideas for exhibition stuff, so I think I'll put a proposal together soon as well. I'm going outside to play with nature because I'm getting napish now and need fresh air so farewell til the weekend, unless I have work to show you from tonight and tomorrow!

I'm not being lazy I've been organising the steps to setting up my own business and also struggling and finishing off old assignments for the summer deadline and when I say I couldn't be happier to see the back of them I mean it with every fibre of my being, now they are gone I can work on projects of my own and be free to do and dream, although I do miss college (sigh) farewell B.C.F.E I knew thee well and loved thee true! Hopefully I will have stuff to post soon, I'm working on some Halloween primitive dolls and also some books, and paintings and zines and cards of various kinds, so busy busy busy but they are all at baby and planning stages so nothing to show as yet, but it is progress, and now my little blister has gone back to college I've got the house to myself during the day more or less and will continue to work work work ....promise :)
