Hello! I hope you are having a nice weekend so far.
I don't have much to share here, really. Just some daisies in a jar. And ferns to accompany them.
I'm working on a big-ish project that involves lots of embroidery, and above you can see a little bit of it. Some white sprigs stitched onto dark linen.
A few good things I've found around the traps lately:
- The Lonely Death of George Bell is an amazing piece of journalism. NYT writer N.R Kleinfield investigated what happened when an elderly person died alone, and followed the many ripples it caused. Sad, but completely engrossing and important work, I think.
- The programme for the NZ Arts Festival (early next year) is out and I'm having fun planning what to see/hear.
- A friend and I went to see Gifted, at Circa Theatre. Janet Frame is one of my favourite authors, and this play mythologised her quite a bit. But the performances were beautiful.
- This dress. I am going to try and make something similar to wear this summer. Again, perhaps a bit ambitious...!
