Back in action!

I've been away visiting family in Australia for the past two months. I had the best time catching up with my daughter, son-in-law and the grandchildren. Now I'm getting back to normal................... Starting with a new version of "Brigid" .

(Click on photo for bigger image)

This one represents Brigid the 'Fire of the hearth', the goddess of fertility, family, childbirth and healing. She has a more recognisable 'goddess' shape, like the 'wise women' that I like to make, and a more maternal, matronly look to her. The body fabric for this version is white silk, machine quilted to felt, giving a nice sheen rather than a woolly look.
