I love the different shades in the amazonite, from a milky green/white to a deep almost turquoise blue/green, to teal. There are lots of other colours in the stones too, from reds and browns through to black and grey. It never ceases to amaze me how all these colours come from one particular stone.

(Unfortunately, Bishop Bob didn't win the Bishop competition, but he has become our office mascot, so has a life after the competition. The winning entry was Bishop Desmond Tutu. Apparently, ours would have won the award for "Pure Artistry", had there been such an award!)

More texture from the woolly sheep.
Peace Felt is a very interesting project to be involved with as you never know what is going to be sent. It is also good to make contacts in other parts of the world - all with an interest in felting and craft. I hope my recipient will like her gift of the Saltfleetby picture.

At the University College where I work, the Chaplaincy challenged all the departments to make a Bishop (in the style of a scarecrow) and place them in various locations around college to be viewed on Tuesday. My colleague, Rachael and I decided to make a small scarecrow Bishop and shine a light on him to project a shadow, as our entry. Other departments have gone for Bishop Desmond Tutu (in a tutu, naturally) or Harold Bishop (from 'Neighbours') or St Nicholas, who was also a Bishop. We have devised a Tate Modern inspired description for our installation and have had help from the Maintenance Department who kindly provided the lighting.
