New skills


Last night I said goodbye to my lovely sister who went back to England after a short visit. She taught me to crochet whilst she was here and claims to be a rubbish teacher but something must have got through. This is what I made this morning when I should have been catching up with college work but just felt too sad.


This is an assignment piece. It’s a self portrait using an alternative part of the body to reveal something of myself.  It was intentionally painted onto  a copy of my well used cake recipe book, and the childs drawing was a happy accident – nothing is safe in this house. Like most females of my age and especially post babies, I obsess about the size of my stomach but thoroughly enjoy the occasional chocolate brownie or six.
