A Treat to Myself

I've treated myself.  I've been a fan of Angie Lewin's work for a long time; I have her book, Plants and Places, and have often bought cards (usually to give to other people) so I ordered one of her limited edition screen prints.

When it arrived it was even more stunning in real life than I could have imagined.


It went off to the framers and on Saturday I collected it, and hung it in my living room.


It gives me great pleasure every time I look at it and cheers up the greyest of raining days.

And I've started some new knitting - I'm really loving the colours in the pattern.


Have a good week!

The Angie Lewin print is perfect for your fresh new decor, it's the kind of picture that is so multilayered you will never tire of looking at it.
And the knitting is splendid too, the sort of pattern that requires concentration ... no TV with subtitles or a pen intricate plotline with not much dialogue!

Beautiful colours of the knitting, but the print of Angie Lewin's work is stunning. Hanging on your wall it really is a feast for the eye. I will have a look at her site.

Oh but you deserve a treat every now and again Su! What a fabulous and fresh looking print which will no doubt provide you with much pleasure. Your latest knitting project looks most complicated. I like the soft muted colours. It looks the sort of a creation that might have adorned a young lady in bygone years - shades of Agatha Christie about it :)

How lovely to be able to enjoy that print every day. Your knitting is beautiful!

Su, I am also an Angie Lewin fan, and am so glad to learn that you'll now have the opportunity to view one of her prints every day in your home.

Your new knitting is so beautiful. The complexity of the pattern changes and the harmony of the colors involved are yielding something very, very special. I particularly like your use of the bi-colored ribbing...a marvelous touch to get the story going. xo

It's beautiful, I don't know Angie Lewin. It's nice to treat ourselves every once in a while. Your knitting looks very complex, the colours are fabulous.

OH Su, I'm not normally an envious person, but I am having big print envy here - it is stunning! Well done on treating yourself - I have her book too and it is one of my favourites.

Fab picture. I will look her up immediately. Kathy Lewis (Forest of Dean artist) is my go-to source of prints at present.
