This thick, textured wool reminds me of jumpers my Mum used to wear. Always chunky, comforting, enveloping her small frame. I have a few of her jumpers still, and I always feel comforted when I wear them.

Is a poem by Max Ehrmann given to me by my Mum when I left home to go to university. It talks of striving to be at peace with the world as you live your life and it is very inspiring. When I'm facing times of stress, no matter how small, I read it again, it's pinned on...

Twists and turns, I feel like healing is full of them. When wrapping these scissors some bits turned out perfectly neat, some messy. I wanted to rewrap the messy side, but decided to leave it, because that's how it, and life, is sometimes.

Listening to Children in Need on the radio this evening, hearing about other young people who have lost parents. It's an important part of healing, those little reminders that others are going through what you are experiencing.

Sometimes the day just rushes by, with so much going on. I am always thinking of my Mum as she has influenced everything I do, but I feel like the time to feel and heal is too small, too tiny.

A daily exploration of grief and healing. 


I am wrapping hard, sharp scissors, my grief, with a variety of soft and tactile yarns and materials, the healing process. During this time I reflect upon my personal feelings about the recent loss of my mother and fellow artist Julie Grimes.


Heartfelt thanks to the following for their contribution of scissors to enable this project to take place:

Coolblades, Peta UK, Terry Davidge, Amy Garrad, Didi Davidge.
