Good afternoon from New York.
While creating my recent posts about my U.K. holiday, I have also been working on several other projects.
It's the season when I usually take up my neglected watercolor materials and begin painting Christmas teacup cards. I've been wrestling with this year's design, and took a break yesterday with a visit to the farmers market, determined to see something that would inspire me.
This delicately beautiful cyclamen plant has become this year's muse. Since I have been drawing and painting almost all day, I neglected to take a photo for this post while there was still abundant natural light. Still, perhaps you can get the idea of how the design elements of this plant give lots of inspiration.
Perhaps some of you will also have noticed that something has been added to my sidebar.
I am delighted to announce that I have finally opened the "etsy" shop that I've been working towards all year long. There is still much for me to learn about this etsy concept, but I am very happy to have taken this first step.
Many friends with years of etsy experience have been helpful and encouraging to me and I thank you all so very much.
In the weeks and months to come, I will be showing you all more of what I have been knitting and knitting and knitting. It will also be fun to tell a bit about how I am inspired by various knitting traditions and love adding my own spin.
It's possible that my crocheting and art work will also be part of the mix at my FoakleyArts shop. This is just the beginning.
I admit to wishing for more and more hours in each day.
