We've been busy in the new studio. I've been working on some pieces of tartan and tweed patchwork (all leftover pieces from kilt makers and dressmakers) which I'm going to use to cover an old but very comfy chair. It was coming along very well, but I've got sidelined by a frenzy of knitting. I'm easily distracted. Or maybe I just like having lots of things on the go at once.
And him? Well he also seems to be on a sewing kick at the moment, loving the freedom of choosing his own colours, using a needle (a big blunt one) and his very own scissors. He seems to go off into his world. I hope it lasts.
Our family are members of the L'Arche Inverness Community. I am a mother of two boys and married to a delightful Frenchman. He is the leader of a therapeutic garden project at L'Arche, but is also a metal engraver, jeweller and artist. I spend my time between home and L'Arche, as a House Assistant. I love sewing, knitting, photography and baking - life is too short! I speak a few languages badly. We are privileged to live in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands where we often sense our Creator. I enjoy telling stories and using Godly Play.
I take my photos using a Canon EOS 400D. If you want to use any of them, please be lovely enough to ask me first.
