Doctors Orders

Some of you may have noticed that I have not participated in TAST for a couple of weeks that is because my CTS (Carpel Tunnel Syndrome) has come back, possibly made worse by a recent virus that I had.

Anyway, I had an injection today in my left wrist (goodness it hurts) and am being forced to rest. My right is not as bad but must rest that as well - typing this one handed is not easy...

The good news is that if the injection does not work then there is a simple op to cure it, which means my pending career change to a full-time artist is still on schedule. I should be back up and running soon, but in the meantime will keep an eye on Sharon's Blog and everyones progress on Flickr.

Crocus flower print

We have a had a beautiful spring like day here and I took the opportunity at lunch time to take my new camera to the Museum Gardens here in York. I have published a few photos on Flickr, but then decided to play with a picture of some crocus's.

I love just using a cut effect and one colour, the colour was taken from the crocus and I think is lovely. Perhaps I could try to print these on fabric but they would probably lose the intensity of the colour. Oh well that is for another day.
Anyway it is getting very late and I have a full day tomorrow as it is our monthly Embroiderers Guild meeting.
