Seems a long time since I last posted here. It's odd really, because I've been writing this blog since way back in 2007. ..and have a few readers subscribing ...but nothing in comparison to the readership/ reach I have over on Face Book. I actually prefer the 'space' that writing here gives me, but have tended to scale back the depth of description as time has gone by. I guess it has a lot to do with my changing personal circumstance and the effect that it's having on me.
Work has continued on my self portrait...I'm enjoying it still, but there is a lot of subtle stuff yet to do before i'm entirely happy with the sleeve. I decided earlier in the week not to bother trying to depict the stitch detail, but as I worked today for a long period, it became something that needed to be done...and so far it seems to have worked.
I managed a weekend away this week with my daughter Annie...we were guests of our good friends Alison and Mark, Josh and Freya in York. The picture below shows Annie and I at Sandsend enjoying a warm sunny day...ice cream was had and a visit to an art gallery made it a very enjoyable day. We then went on to Whitby where we enjoyed fish and chips overlooking the harbour.
This weekend away actually constituted my summer holiday this year....what it lacked in length, it made up for in being able to see good friends old and new and relax. Good stuff!
