I enjoy so many aspects of making my pieces, but some work I would prefer to leave to elves.
I've spent time in recent weeks cutting lino, and quilting a big piece, and designing more pieces, and being delightfully distracted, .... But for a couple of days pain in my hands and wrists has driven me to pause with the lino, and forced me finally to get down to the much gentler - but to me rather boring - task of finishing off. This is what I would wish the elves to do for me - because as you can see below, I have allowed a pile to accumulate.
But never mind; Nature's elves have been busy, and today the first of the species tulips is in flower, and the smallest euphorbia is looking sculpturally splendid.
