Over the New Year period I was thinking of the pottery I had made during last year and new pieces I would like to make during 2014. And I began to wonder where all my work had actually gone .... who had walked into a gallery or shop and bought it; was their purchase for them or a gift for someone else. Where was the piece sitting right this moment?
Then, as if the universe had heard me, I got a lovely email from Rose who had received one of my large patchwork bowls as a Christmas gift from her sister-in-law who had purchased it from The Little Gallery in Dereham. It is so nice to be able to follow one of my pieces right through the sales chain to the happy owner like this!
Rose's blog is well worth a visit : Handstitchery.blogspot.co.uk. I had to pinch her photo of my/her bowl, as I forgot to take one of my own when I made it last year!
So that's looking back ...... and now, looking forward - I have actually got round to trying a particular kind of quilting pattern which I have been meaning to make for ages.
Here's a little picture clue of the beginnings of this new piece - watch this space to see how this all turns out!
In Rose's blog, she leaves us with the quote from Zora Neale Hurston: "There are years that ask questions, and years that answer".
What kind of year are you hoping for?
