sew



{Giveaway here}


 
 
 
By selling up, leaving France, and now living primarily in Spain
senor h and I have put down the foundations for a
creative/alternative lifestyle. Whilst admit[t]edtly{?} ageing!
we are not ageing hippies: and yet as I type this we are cooking
our vegetable curry on an open firepit. Honestly this makes
me smile: where is the clubbing girl who used to hang out
at the 'Ministry of Sound'.
 
So no debts/mortgage = time to experiment.
 And through creative play
exciting things happen.
 
Been sewing. This is something which I haven't done in years.
It soothes and amuses. Yet seriously I am exploring this historically
female activity in the context of leaving 'my' mark. The fabric I
use is often vintage French ticking which is faded/beautiful and
resonates with an unfathomable history. Inspired/fired; I am
sewing up a collection in anticipation of contacting galleries. [Gulp}.
 
Thursday Treat
 
 
Guru/mucker Ken always told me 'they love a bit a jesus'.
By jove and jolly the chap was right! However, this said Jesus
isn't exactly yer man! What really sells is the Madonna.
[I apologise to those of you who may find the previous a tad
near the mark: i guess I am a liberal/tolerant atheist. Live life
kindly and do as you wish for yourself to others. I do believe in spirits:
i have literally been 'touched' by them]. Anyway this small plaster
French flatback Madonna I found near Lille in Northern France.
I recently mounted her on recycle/upcycled whitewashed wood,
with a hanging device behind for ease of display. I love
religious iconography.
