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.

Crunching ice underfoot

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!



My Christmas card - playing in the December snow

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


'195 miles' at PSL

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.

Knitting going well!

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!


Knitting crazy!

I'm knitting up my plastic bags for Henshaws Arts and Crafts Centre in Knaresborough who are on an artistic mission to cover 26 poles - go here for more information and some gorgeous photos. There are some lovely snowmen too!


East Street Arts

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
