To Do Lists......

I have been looking through images of past work, as well as photos of things that have just caught my eye - all with a view of having more postcards (and possibly greetings cards) printed, ready for the Art Trail. Whittling down and making choices is proving trickier than expected!

Spring has finally arrived in West Sussex; I even managed to get slightly sunburnt on Saturday. The tulips which The Beau planted as a Christmas present surprise are glowing in the sunshine.

I have a loooong ToDo list of tasks to complete before the first weekend in May, but I am not panicking, no, not me..........

Ch ch ch changes

Good things have been happening since I blogged last (in September, shame on me!)

A detail of 'Geode II: the bling geode' being woven for a client.

Today I was teaching at WD - a tapestry taster day, encouraging students to use the Purl and Loop minute loom as a sketchbook to generate quick experimental pieces. I have been using mine a lot, and it has proved a very fruitful practice. I am teaching another tapestry day in July, and also a drawing weekend at the end of June (I have a wry smile at that; I was not allowed to do O Level art because the teacher told me "you can't draw". When I got my MFA, I (internally) waved the certificate in the air and shouted "here's to you Mrs Price". That early discouragement is what makes me so passionate about nurturing creativity in others, so I am thankful for her.

The major news is that back in September I was appointed part-time Chaplain with Chichester Anna Chaplaincy, a charity whose volunteers are spiritual befrienders to older people, particularly the room bound and bed bound in Care Homes. It is very rewarding (and very necessary) work, and a great joy to be part of.

Next month is Chichester Art Trail ( and I am participating for the first time, necessitating much shopping for Really Useful Boxes, carpet cleaning, and so forth - a downside of my studio being in my home.

I also plan to get back to regular blogging.
