new...

...and old. last week i was going through stuff i have hoarded, i came across some old screen and etching prints i had made and once sewn onto. i decided it was time to do something with them or that was it - in the bin. so i went in search of frames and frames i found - in the shape of embroidery hoops. they did the job just perfect. i am in the middle of a big craft clear up, in order to focus on illustration and print work with the intentions of some craft based illustration at a later date. i started the clear up again this afternoon and some old screen-prints went in the bin which did seem a bit harsh but it had to be done. my heart lies with drawing and print. i am now in the first few pages of a NEW big square sketchbook. starting it was scary but good. this is not a circle it is a straight line as my brain keeps telling me, onwards and forwards.

EDIT
added after Kayleigh's comment - i have kept some prints and that behind for a giveaway. i have mentioned doing one before, just never got round to it - maybe when the new website is up and running. stay tuned!
