The light reflected off the glass, and I couldn’t get a good shot no matter how I tried. Do give this a read if you can make it out. It will be bigger if you click on it. How times have changed
No, I’m not going to let you see inside my studio. To say that it is too untidy is putting it mildly! However, I thought I’d show you some work in progress. You’ve seen a few of my collages recently, and I think I’ve hinted that I like stitching into paper too. If you look… Read More What the ‘L’
