With a blue skied, crisp autumnal day upon us ... a lazy sunday afternoon was spent at kew gardens admiring the Henry Moore sculptures there.

This is 'Internal/External form'. As we approached ... i decided it was a lover's embrace ... a friend decided it was mother and child ... and boyfriend thought perhaps it was father and family ... the responses seemed more reflections of the viewers themselves, than the artists intentions ... but when i read this I decided perhaps all three were also able to fit into the later category.

sage remedy

i bought some wool at purl soho while i was in New York recently ... its a delicious lorna's lace fisherman yarn in a hand-dyed sage colour. i absolutely love it and have been obsessing over what i am going to make out of the two skeins i bought ... this is what i have come up with ... a wee winter top with inserts of feather and fan stitch at the front and back ... now to make a pattern ... hmmm
