It is already half way through February and I have finally made some progress with the ALAW project coordinated by Fiona Dempster. This is my third year, though I confess to only doing one of the Alphabets last year. This year we have a free choice alphabet and one centred around the idea of 'Place'.
I have begun with the free form alphabet and am waiting for inspiration to drop in regarding the 'Place' alphabet!
I have done the first eight weeks A to H ..... The backgrounds for my letters are all from engravings of mine and the letraset letters, are those left behind by my father who was an architect. It gives me a wonderful sense of him to be using these letters. I couldn't find them, thought I had thrown them out and then yesterday whilst looking for something completely different, there they were secreted away with beautiful old rulers, set squares and drawing sets. I was thrilled.
