Back in the swing of things
I am starting to think about my next piece of work for the Yorkshire Travelling Journal, not that I currently have one!! The deadline has passed but the person concerned has not yet completed (or even started I suspect) their piece of work. It is not a problem as I can work on ideas in the meantime. I plan to continue to follow my theme of 'Allotments' but at the moment it seems to be focusing more on 'Sheds'!! This one was taken through a window at Salts Mill, Saltaire. We went to see the Hockney exhibition you understand.
There was a fascinating body of work based on the mill workers using bobbins and embroidered reel labels. Strange how some things keep cropping up in life. I have acquired several different shaped and sized bobbins over recent years which I plan to display on a shelf in my workroom-cum-studio if it ever gets finished. Progress is very slow ....
