Levant mine, Cornwall

Finally finished 'Ghosts of Levant'. A mixed media piece - patchwork, printing and machine embroidery....and a treat to do something for me.
The sketch, the plan for the patchwork and the patchwork. 

The photo and the finished piece.

Mawbray - spectacular birds

A refreshing walk with huge flocks of grey plover; golden plover; oystercatcher; sanderling and a fantastic view of a peregrine trying to hover above the waves.

Baleshare iron-age midden finds

While we were on North Uist we extracted a few finds from the Baleshare midden - having done a bit of research it looks like they may actually be of interest! If any one can help - or give more information please do let me know.
From left to right: a weaving comb; an undeveloped comb; two broken awls for multiple tasks.
