Just a quick catch up. I am not really using blogger much now except to read everybody's post. I have mainly moved over to Instagram, its easier. If you are interested in taking a look my address is ://www.instagram.com/djpawle

|New weaving on the loom|
Anyway some new work to keep me and my thoughts occupied. This is the second piece of work for the eco textile exhibition I am taking part in at The Quilt Show in the NEC in Birmingham next year. All naturally dyed yarns and fabrics. Old sheets, Shetland lambs wool and nettle yarns. I am hoping to add some seeds, bark and shells later.

I am now on Instagram, twice accidentally and I don't know how to remove the wrong one, I think you will find me under djpawle, still learning this slightly mysterious to me app, I don't think I am ever going to become tech savvy, I am also on Pinterest twice, how did I do that?

Yesterday I went to a talk by an artist I have only recently discovered Jenny Leigh. I think many of you who look at my blog would like her work. Her talk was fascinating and very moving as is her work. Check her out at https://www.jennyleigh.co.uk/ Its her more recent work on totems and tokens of gratitude that I am particularly drawn to.

|I have made a start, the browner pieces are where I have started|
removing loose bark
|Some of the debris|
|The fibrous bits are from the layer under the bark and are quite|
wet. There are odd spots of green mould.
There after photos may not appear for some time, it will depend on weather and my available time. Both pieces will probably go in next year's West Country Quilt and Textile show at the end of August.
