The writing IS on the wall

I went on a jaunt inland to meet new clients in Sheffield and in amongst my walk up into town I followed this joyful splash of gilt and rose and raspberry.

It led me to this poem, writ large, shining across the city.  Photographing the city is a very different thing from photographing rock pools and lichen!

Elsewhere I searched out for more gold, pressed in and upon old stones.

I'm hoping my next jaunt will let me visit fellow blogger and textile artist Hannah Lamb's work at The Bowery (see here for more details). Hannah will also be participating in The Saltaire Arts Trail (more information here).  See below Hannah's beautiful cyanotype postcards.  You can find out more about her at http://hannahlamb.blogspot.co.uk.

The workshop is buzzing with a little pile of commissions.  Busy but happy.  A bientôt mes amis!


  1. I needed a poem like that, right at this very moment. Thank you.

    lovely earrings, i'm quite partial to ferns.

  2. Thanks for the kind mention Cari. Hope you make it to the Bowery or Saltaire... let me know if you are heading over my way. x
