tiny books - two together - both featuring a portrait of a gentleman from the 18th Century.
So, another sunny and warm start to the week. We are having a summer in England (this can feel extraordinary and does). It is set to remain sunny for the rest of the week. I'm indoors, staying cool as I work on new stitches, a special order for a London venue - and new stitches for my Etsy shop too (re-opening toward the end of summer, most likely, I want to have a good selection of new work ready).
I'm also working on new landscape paintings and making lots of new sketches toward new ideas. Hope to share with you a few glimpses of new work in the next few weeks. My next shop update will most likely be at around the beginning of August.
If you read my writing blog nevering, you may be interested to know that I am going to attempt to post a new piece of writing there, a poem or short piece of fiction, every day in August. I'm hoping you might like to dip in and read when you can. I'll be exploring new and older ideas (do you remember the Violet Goodenough? you may have that zine from a few years ago - hope to explore more of her story).
Have a good week and more soon.

You don't need me to tell you just how important it is to have bee plants in our gardens. I think the bees I see the most are leaf cutter bees, but I also see the more traditional golden and black bumbles.
Thanks to everyone who has visited my shop since it was updated on Wednesday. Several artworks are now on their way to new homes. I have new ideas already taking shape (in my head at least) and will be working on these over the next weeks.
Have a good weekend - if I get time I'll share some tiny book pages.
