Spring flowers in winter

Spring flowers at Stoneheath
Dave's father passed away in his sleep this morning. He had been sick for quite a long time, so not a surprise and actually a relief that it was peaceful for him.  So nice that many of the family could be together and comfort one another. The cycle of life turns. 

Yesterday when I was out at the shops I treated myself to a pot of tulips.  Still green buds, they hold lots of promise of what's to come. Maybe I'll get around to painting them when they open a bit more. You can see that tulips also feature on one of the textile cushions I've been creating.  I'm enjoying making them. I will carry them in my gallery and also at Koru art annex in the spring.

Stay warm out there!  The weather forcast is BIG SNOW for most of the eastern part of the continent tomorrow.


  1. Hi Sally, just catching up on all your January posts. What an amazingly talented creature you are - you can turn your hand to anything! Love your cushions and all your artworks (see my comment on your dusk collection). Maybe one year I will be able to do a painting class with you - your classes look so good!

    I hope the BIG SNOW isn't too overwhelming for you in your neck of the woods!

    I am thinking of you all with the passing of Dave's dad - a very emotional time for you all.
    Take care and big hugs,
