Caught in the act!

Me workLike many people who work from home I tend to have the radio on all day long. And, if not the radio then I have an audiobook plugged into my ears. So, it is quite possible for a camera-toting daughter (home for the holidays) to sneak up on me and catch me off guard.

Recently, I’ve been working on smaller pieces, but I decided I must just knuckle down and finish this large scarf. It is inspired by the colours of St Peter’s robes as depicted on the Ranworth rood screen. You can see my photograph of the bottom of the robes (with feet!) propped up in the above picture and a bit more detail at Motif combinations.

    1. I was still at the stage where I liked it, but that always changes as I paint the last section for some reason. The finished piece never quite captures what I was aiming for, but that’s life.

    1. Yup – I have my workbench set up as near to the window as possible for the light. I always have to mix up the dye colours in daylight as they vary quite a bit in different electric light. By the way, I like your new profile pic with the stylish short haircut.

  1. Thanks! I have often worn it short in the past, but last year, while we were in Poland, I let Bill at it with his beard trimmer. He gave me a number one when he slipped and mowed a path through the bob. Since then I have no further desire to try to grow it long again.
