My thoughts on arrival here are many and excited and therefore somewhat scatty, such is the nature of my be-ing. My natural instinct is towards the visual so these are my initial offerings.
I made this painted silk piece a few years ago for Imbolc, in honour of Brigit. As I hail from Brigit’s Isle it seemed fitting that I relate to Hestia in this form as all are one in essence. The painting represents the return of the fire/sun after the winter and it echoes, for me, my joining you all here at Hestia’s Hearth.
These are from a sketchbook challenge I undertook earlier this year …. I love the idea of birthing from the flames, rebirthing even. I am thinking this could be interpreted as is in stitch using some vintage linens of the household variety that I recently acquired – they are old table settings and arm rests etc . bringing together, in my mind, the actuality of the home and the fire from the welcoming hearth. My initial ideas.
