Hurray nearly finished ,it always seems slow this bit but I’m nearly there!
I really am pleased with it…its one of my most tricky portraits yet!
thought I’d also show you the threads¬† bought from the handweavers gallery which is a specialist shop in london.
These are singles hand dyed linens and are just to dye for literally! they are beautiful to work with and I love using them in my portraits.

Dolphin Square

Been staying in dolphin sq which is amazing experience! The wee one has loved it here in london…she’s been great -walking loads and become an expert on london play parks! Been to see lots of friends¬†while here ¬†.yesterday we went swimming in the famous pool at dolphin sq. Wean loved it!

My work went well , I was meeting other members of 62 group to look at 1st stage applications for membership. Took quite a long time but we all felt we’d done a great job and have chosen quite a wide selection for 2nd stage.

Also mangaed it to the handweavers studio on haroldstone rd -got some amazing singles hand dyed linen for my portraits – only had about 20 mins spare to get yarn but could have spent ages in there looking…….

Then after all met up with tim and dawn who’d gallantly been looking after the wean and we went to wagamammas on the south bank which was fantastic…had a really graet dinner and tootsie managec most of her dinner. Really brilliant to see polly who is looking really well….Then got taxi home!

today I think we are going to do the tates!

Going to shower and get ready to go which takes ages!
