These days sadly for this blog, my first stop for posting my photographs is Facebook.
For those who don't use it, I have a normal facebook account for everyday stuff that only friends can see, and I have a 'page' for anyone to look at with just my textile work on it. (Update for all those who asked its here: Jackie Cardy textiles )
It can be 'liked' by people and on Friday morning I had about 820 likes.
Then I uploaded these pictures and suddenly there was an absolute torrent of comments, likes, shares and now I have 960 likers.
For those of you who do use facebook I expect you'll be sick of the sight of these by now!
When I made them I did feel as though I was 'In The Zone' which is an expression my son used once when I told him I'd had a very high score in tetris.
These did. I just love the way the colours work together somehow. Especially the leaf with the yellow centre on the left. It had a lovely blend of lime and jade down the side that was unexpectedly delicious.
I had made all these pieces as a selection for the delightful Lazyhill Gallery in Abbotsbury, Dorset, but when I showed them to Rachel for her to choose she wanted them all!
I am so grateful.
Meanwhile I will be making some similar ones for other places.....if I am in the zone again.
