Not often you get to write a sentence like that. All it needs is ‘gherkins’ added and it’s near perfect.
So, here is a miscellany of images, starting with the recycled insect house, as promised, which is at Wightwick Manor in Staffordshire. I have a few old pots and roof tiles, I’m off to make one asap. All sorts of small life and different types of bee and hoverfly can find a useful space to live in the many nooks and crevices, and my idea is to make it as beautiful, in its own way, as possible.
Onto ‘ Flying’ now. Here is an image of some components from the Flying page of my book ‘The Stone Bird’. I’m stitching them individually and then stitching them onto a painted lutradur background. It’s a double page spread situation.
And here is the finished Bird of Paradise.
I won’t bother posting a picture of a gherkin on this occasion.
