Phew. I finally start to settle back into some sort of routine after the summer session where I felt a little like a ping pong ball in play – batted to and fro from A to B. In some ways great to camp a bit, festival a bit, explore a bit. However I increasingly started to feel the need to settle – a lot, and how better to ground myself than with the study of bluebells (harebells if you’re English) for a Roman Blind.
Sketching flowers from various angles for applique
Included with the blind was a complimentary lampshade made from the sample piece used to try out different techniques prior to making.
Tangle of stems and a flower head.
and the blind itself was much appreciated by a delightful client.

Next project…Sloe berry blinds x 2 and a set of curtains. So far so good.
