container......

Wow, have I taken a dive!

Retired and tore a ligament in my knee almost at the same hour!

Talk about slowing down. Im almost at a snails pace right now, with surgery on the horizon.

For a couple of weeks, I was discombobulated and frustrated. 

Now Im just discombobulated, with a dose of low mood! 

Such plans.....London to see the Alexander Mc Queen exhibition, meeting friends for coffees and lunches and some more useful stuff like helping out at the local food bank. Nada! 

(I heard that the Mc Queen exhibition is highly misogynistic ..... anyone out there seen it to confirm/deny?).

Feeling pretty lifeless but got my head around this weeks Kim Klassen prompt, which was about using different containers.

Grabbed some two-lips, (granddaughter speak) and a rather nice, but useless artists box that I bought a while ago as I thought it was a bargain.....it wasnt!

Made the mistake of not spotting the pollen.....

Anyway, week 47 of 52. Im no stiller than I was this time last year, but Im slower!

Here are my results.....how did you get on with it?

turkish map fold.....or hungarian......or moroccan?

I learned this Turkish map fold from www.greenchairpress.com blog and I love it!

Though there is some controversy about whether its a Turkish or a Hungarian map fold...I'm calling it a Moroccan map fold, because I'm going to be teaching an art retreat in Morocco next April and I'm going to teach participants how to make fabulous papers, tassels and the famous Moroccan map fold!

More of that in a later post......this one is headed off to America........
