Since my last entry, I fell on the ice and broke my arm. Unfortunately it is my dominant hand! Just as I was about to start exploring a new theme. So, no sewing, only a little daily drawing with my left arm. I started a new sketchbook, my «Left-hand book», to not just sit and feel sorry for myself, but to get down ideas and thoughts. Not great art, but a challenge in itself.
Hopew you enjoyed this.

Since last time, I have mainly worked in my sketchbooks, trying to develope something, but it has not been easy,
I have just made two small sketchbooks connected to trees and forrests, both summer and winter.
The winter book was supposed to be in black and white, but when I glued the collage of the winterbook with gel medium, the black and white photocopies suddenly developed colour, a very subtle winter colour.
Now I just have to fill the few pages with more collage.
Even if it has bees a while since my last post, I have been making my monthly books.
In July, my garden was filled with roses and lillies, so of course I had to use them as a theme:
As usual, I printed on a large sheet of paper, cut it up and sew my little book:
For my September book, I chose dragonflies as my theme since I am back trying to finish some quilts with dragonflies.
And my book:
Thank you for watching.
Hopefully you don’t have to wait too long for my next entry…
We’re halfway through May already! Sorry for the late update of April, but I’ve been busy taking care of my garden after winter. And since April has been filled with the comming of new life., my April-book is filled with prints using new leaves from the garden, both directly and some gelli-prints with the leaves as stencils. Not so many to choose from as it was still early spring, but I used the few I could find. Unfortunately, I was halfway through cutting my sheet of paper when I rembered to take a photo:
And here are the finished Book of April:
Corona is still affecting our daily life, even if the society has slowly started to open up.
I have been enjoying Bobby Britnells on-line course «Inspired by Ben Nicholson» and here are some of my results:
My prints on textile are still on my design-wall waiting to be processed.
I hope you have enjoyed this little update from my studio.
