A much improved photo of cuffs with wrists (not mine). Taking this photo was the only work I did yesterday, which was a joyous novelty. I sat in the sun, knitted, cuddled the cat, watched tv. Not all at the same time. I really deserved a rest. I finished the residency at Bilston on Saturday with mixed relief and sadness. I have loved being there, working with such nice people and learning and exploring so much. But I will enjoy spending some time at home, and being in my own studio. My list of things to catch up with once the residency was over grows ever longer and as yet, nothing is even in progress from it, but I’m looking forward to the Easter break to have at least a couple of days of painting and sorting out.
I was delighted to be able to send off this giant orange blanket to my friend who has just had her third child, who was born a bit early, but is fine now. The blanket just kept growing, and is probably big enough to wrap all three children, in gorgeous orange sunshine!
