Four badly painted walls

Things are really hard at the moment, but I was really desperate to do something. Anything. I miss my shed. I haven’t been in it for a month and then two months before that. Don’t forget the shed.

These are reject stock printed canvases that I painted with gesso ages ago. For a while they’ve had a colleges mounted on them and have just been hanging around.

In a fit of deciding to do something about the heap my life is in at the moment I raided the end less cupboard of art for some inks.

Spontaneous art who’d of thunk it!

I’ve left these out side the shed and I might come back to them or might just attack the rest of the prepared canvases.

So it goes

Hurry up and wait – crocheting

I’ve been doing a lot of hurry up and wait recently and taking up some of that time, when the brain isn’t up to anything more, doing even more crochet.

Nigel 3.0 has got rather boring (250 + stitches per row), but there are is also some amazingly hideous yarns out there to break me out of a rut. Read the rest of this entry »

Place holder: r u alive?

I be been spending rather a lot of time at hospital recently. It’s a liminal space. And I’ve had too much time to think about the people and things that occupy that space.

This post is a place holder, an indication of the beginning of a process, of a journey, both in the care of the person I’ve been with in hospital, but also of the creative inspiration I’ve received.

I’m not sure of either destination (yet). Read the rest of this entry »

Life still rather off course

So here is an update on Nigel 3.0. (Not a cat)

so about half way down you can see a pulled stitch. That’s where I got to last time with a circumference of 25 stitches. Now the circumference is about five times that length. 

I shall keep going until I finish the two balls of yarn. Then we’ll see what comes out of using such a small rate of expansion 26/25. I’ll post updates here because hopefully by next week I’ll have more of my life back (beyond being able to count to 25).
