Inspiration!


For the last few days, I have been hearing, the call of the
Curlew.  A harbinger of Spring, in these parts!
I walk Daisy, at around 7am. and this morning it was frosty but
absolutely beautiful.



I treasure these early morning, quiet times, when there is no one about.


It's been difficult at home, as Mr C. has broken a rib.
It's very debilitating and painful and of necessity a lot more has fallen
to me to do, so 'time out' has become more important.
I've managed a bit of time in my work room, although up till 
this week, inspiration has been a bit elusive.
I decided not to purchase any new wool, although I was sorely 
tempted, for the 'hap along', I mentioned in my last post.
I searched through my stash and came up with this .....


I bought it from a small producer at the Masham Sheep Fair.
It has delicate shades of pink and blue. Hope it will suit!
I have also found my inspiration for my new stellar rug.


The next step was to abstract, the elements of the picture that 
appealed to me and that I thought would give a pleasing result.
I drew it out and transferred it onto transparency film.

Just need to put it on the overhead projector, so I can blow it up
and draw it onto my hessian background.
Then the hard work begins ....... 
 'one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration'!
Heh! Heh!
Have a good week, everyone.
