Bits and pieces

Pepper the cat is making himself completely at home, he kept trying to catch my pencil as I tried to do some sketching - unsuccessfully (the sketching that is)!

I'm really a dog person although until 10 years ago I'd always had both, but Pepper has such a personality I find him endearing. My previous cats were called Theobalds 1, 2, 3 and 4 (pronounced Tibbles) and I find myself calling Pepper Tibbles or Mr. Tibbs which reminds me that he IS a he! I know now for certain I won't have another dog; a cat is so much easier and as my life is now I don't need the responsibility of a dog.
Some work in progress, I'm enjoying making this wall hanging using screen printed fabrics, some I printed last year. I'm considering some more machining maybe, which you can't really see in this photo!.

I'm part of a mini print exchange that Lesley http://printedmaterial.blogspot.co.uk/ has organised and have enjoyed planning a small piece of work; of course I'm not going to show what I'm up to!!

The grandchildren continue to delight. We took Barney to Standalone Farm in Letchworth, he's not usually shy in front of the camera!

Having fun with water, making tea I think!

Brother William is growing fast, now 9 weeks old and weighing quite a bit more than Barney did at 4 months; being full term makes life much easier.

Last week a friend and I went to The Bramble Patch in Weedon to join a Stephanie Redfern 2 day course. We had a lovely time and my next post will be all about it; I've not had time to finish my piece yet. Day 1 was printing/ painting fabrics and papers, great fun.


  1. Lovely pictures. Looking forward to seeing what you've been up to.

  2. I must start thinking about my print for the exchange! Lovely pictures of the boys.

  3. Hi Anna..You won my giveaway. Pink?

  4. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to seeing what you did with Steph. Lovely to see so much going on in this post but how I wish you had not reminded me about the print exchange. I really need to pull my finger out and settle on an idea!
