Ouroboros

Ouroboros, symbol of eternal renewal, the snake that eats its own tail. I spent a very long time making this piece, made from a discarded bible, I cut the pages into squares then folded each square into one of those origami fortune teller things, I remember loving these when I was a child, colouring the sides, adding fates and destinies, then I stacked them and curled the shape into the ouroboros.

Spring is coming, it might not feel like it but green shoots are pushing their way up through Mother Earth. #workinprogress #goddess #watercolour #ishtar #easter #eastre #ostara #spring #celandine #butterfly #gold #silver #hare #sun #moon
I started a little group a few years ago when our local library became a Community Library. It’s called Knot, Knit & Natter. It’s every 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month 10am - 12pm. You don’t have to pay and you don’t have to knit! It’s open to everyone, just bring a project, or just bring yourself! There was a great article recently on @bbcradio4 about loneliness and how it is on the increase, little groups like this one are so helpful in getting people out of their home to spend a couple of hours in warm friendly space where there is no pressure to do anything but ‘be’. Everyone is welcome and our next gathering is on Tuesday at Kinver Community Library. We are a very friendly bunch! 😊#community #dontbelonely #textiles #craft #friendship #bbcradio4
