1722 sounds like a date but in actual fact these are the number of hits to date on this blog since I posted my first ramblings on 10th April ’08! I am really delighted that numbers are multiplying month on month and have now added a counter at the bottom right hand side of the blog.
Because of my injured hand I have had plenty of time to think about my work and what I will be preparing for the Crafts Council. To date I have made several pieces since I got selected to participate in ‘Breaking Out’, but as I really want to ‘wow’ them I still need to strive for that special piece to materialise. I am intending on incorporating some found items into my work as well and hope that when I find those special items the piece will just come naturally, fingers crossed! I have also been working on some designs for a couple of new bags and a vessel with some shibori elements, hopefully my hand will be healed enough next week to put them into action. The Irish Green Gathering is also in the final 10 days of preparation so probably it is a good thing that I don’t have as much time to felt.
