Hello, I'm still around…..

Hello to all my lovely followers and apologies for my long absence.

As you may know I started a BAHons degree in design last September. I have to say it has filled every waking moment (and often given me sleepless nights,) but I am loving every minute.

I have been pushed way out of my comfort zone more times than I can count, learning new techniques and developing ones that I already knew.

I have spent the summer break working on my sketchbook, visiting galleries, and researching many artists and designers. What a treat it's been.

This is a piece of work on trees that I've been working on, the medium is ink on paper.




I've also worked the piece on linen fabric using procion dyes and bleach the finishing with hand stitching.




















In between I've allowed myself the luxury of a little hand stitching inspired the Kantha work of the women in Bangladesh and Bengal. Some of these have added to my Etsy shop.




I've really missed my blog friends and I'm busy catching up with all your news. Please say Hello and leave me a comment.

I'm back for my second year soon, can't wait.

xox Angela.

It is good to see your post today. I have not been able to do much in the way of posting recently either--problems with my hands. Your stitched projects are so pretty as are the pieces of work with the trees!
