On the May bank holiday I visited Lindisfarne (Holy Island) and picked up this miniature standing stone (it’s lying down here, but it really does stand)

With a view to scaling it up in the future, I increased the fossil mark to fit on the 4"x4" loom, and wove with the bone needle I made on a day course at the Weald and Downland Museum (using flint tools!)

Second version, with the mark woven at 90 degrees to the warp, giving a better curve.

I plan to use Ritual Landscapes and Standing Stones as the ‘model’ for my PhD studio practice in the first instance, so this all feeds into it.

Splodge inspects Lemminkäinen!

More work on Geode II today - now on panel 7 of 14.  There is a new urgency to this as (drumroll......)
I have been offered (and accepted) a place at UCA Farnham for a practice-based PhD, starting in the autumn.  

I am, of course, extremely excited, but slightly apprehensive too.  I will need to be very organised and use all my time wisely; this has not always been my strongpoint!
