They are ready for some colour maybe... but I'm waiting for my plants to wake up, and until then it's nice to work with no colour at all.
:: Thanks for all the comments about the madder silk thread and congratulations to Christine who will get some in the post. I'll email you :)
:: I've updated my workshop list for spring and summer over in the sidebar. More dates coming soon.
:: Apologies to people who are waiting to hear from me, my next job is catching up with my emails...
