Latest work - A New Sampler

This is my latest project - a sampler for my boyfriend. It is to celebrate our first year together. The anniversary is on the 29th January, so I have really got to get going with this to get it completed and framed in time. I started it as soon as I got back from India and have made pretty good progress, but alas Christmas celebrations have slowed me down this week... I hope he likes it!

I have been in India for the last three weeks,
having the time of my life!


Tea plantations, Munnar, Kerala, India


Apologies for the lack of posts - I have been away travelling along the SW coast of India. A spectacular 3 weeks of good food, vibrant colours, high temperatures and a few interesting personalities which we met along the way. Anyway, back in Angleterre and getting on with some new projects - one embroidery project and some canvases. The one thing I missed most in those 3 weeks away - my needle and not my pen. I always find things like that interesting... Anyway, for some images of the trip see www.blipfoto.com/inkyleaves (15th November - 5th December).
