Patterns I have been working on

Now the question is: How and on what to sell it?
Prints?
Cards?
Dare I say it... the fabric/cushion/tea towel nightmare?

Quiet spaces

There is a church a little walk up the hill, through a chestnut forest. The two lane gravel track deposits one in an open space. Contained by a packed stone wall on two sides and the church on the third, the space is literally held in peace.

It is profound.

An over-used word at the best times, I can't think of another way to convey the calm serenity here.

Studio Space

Studio space at La Muse Retreat in SW France  - simpleintrigue.blogspot.com

The Forest Floor

Sitting quietly in the forest
I don't focus on anything in particular
There is no plan around what to build or not build
I am trying hard to stay only in the present and observe each thing as I see it
Right then
For what it is

A Rose stem reminds me of a Giraffe
And so it starts
The stem turns into the neck and grows into the antlers so maybe it isn't a giraffe
The Body takes shape with a basket like weave held carefully together by pieces of ivy
Sticks and twigs are added to the neck and head
More ivy is wound around to keep it all in place
