Hello again

A blog. Oh my god, I have a blog? Actually I have two and they’re both languishing in sad and dusty state. Poor blogs.

Hey Kirsty, what the hell happened to you?

Oh you know, nothing much? My world fell apart & then I fell apart.

After a very difficult 18 months, my husband and I have now moved to lovely Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire where we are slowly putting our lives back together. I am currently in the midst of a big ME/CFS crash but I’m slowly pulling myself out of it with lots of rest and knitting. And I’m very slowly inching my way back to making art. It will NOT involve jars.

I’m not sure what this blog is going to look like over the next few months, let’s just play it by ear.

About Kirsty

I am an artist & purveyor of mad obsessive projects based in Hebden Bridge, England. My work involves the accretion of large numbers of small objects - pins in fabric, knots in string or hundreds of envelopes - to make sculptures that deal with fragility, loss, repetition, obsession and time.

  2. Hey Kirsty!!! Great to hear from you. Did wonder where you had gone!. Glad things are looking up now although the last 18 months sound hellish and I know from close experience how difficult ME/CFS can be. Take care of yourself and now you are in Hebden {just down the road from me really} we might get to bump into each other at some art events!
    Welcome back…

  7. Kirsty I hope your having a better time now just discovered your blog, my daughter Charlotte has ME CFS/fibro she knits too, (an accidental knitter blog) Look after yourself, Its hard to rest when you so much want to create, but if you force yourself to really rest you WILL get better quicker. Im an artist to and having a dreadful time had to stop as Charly needs care and her sister needs full time care now too, I know the future will be better this will pass that is what keeps me going. I hope you have a remission soon
