Have just come back from walking in the Lake District for a few days with my daughter and husband over the Christmas holidays. Frosty days!
Longlands, Cumbria light casting deep shadows.

And I finished the knitting for Kate's centre (notmassproduced)and posted it to her today! Hope to go and see it 'in situ' in a couple of weeks!
And a very happy New Year to all my blog readers and followers. Thank you for all your sharing and comments - what a lovely community you all are! I decided to give my blog a more festive, seasonal look - hope you like it - I love the snow which I saw on Jeanne's lovely blog ART IT
Yesterday I went to the launch of '195 miles' a joint art collaboration between PSL (Project Space Leeds) and the Whitechapel Gallery in London - it was really buzzy. Lovely mulled wine and mince pies warmed us up on such a damp cold day, and there was even an installation complete with live horse grabbing everyones attention. I look forward to following the project over the next 2 months and I recommend a visit - go here for more information.
My progress so far - you would hardly believe that these are Tesco and Sainsbury plastic bags when knitted! I'm loving the process! thanks to notmassproduced for the idea! My friend Jean has given me a big bag full of used plastic bags so I can keep going over the holidays. Next to knit is the blue stripe!
Just wanted to mention 'Multitude' at ESA in Leeds again. It was a great event and I have posted photos about the 'collections tour' earlier. The staff are really hot about publishing what they've done and even have a blog where you can read more about what went on and also see photos of the Salon exhibition
