The mock Picasso is finished -

which means that I have completed all of my eight constructed samples - just the 3D piece to go - unless a rewrite of the history of embroidery is called for. [Never mind the quality - feel the weight!]

It is a habit of mine to scan my work in grey scale and black and white as well as colour - sometimes the scans provide more ideas for designs. Not sure what I could do with these, though.

I was hoping to show you how a black and white [well - mostly black] scan led into a piece - but I can't find my pictures of either - so perhaps tomorrow.

I spent yesterday afternoon on the second phase of the great work room re-organisation - no pictures of that either, I'm afraid. It is tidier, but the new units did not swallow as much junk as i had hoped, so still not the neat oasis of calm I had envisaged. [I can hear my sons' laughter from here - assuming they are still reading ...] However - I can now see much more of the floor!

Celia, I love your mock Picasso! And I will try scanning my working in gray scale -- it's a very good idea.

Your granddaughter is beautiful!
