Statement by Kate Lycett;
I grew up in Suffolk where the skies are vast and the land is low and flat. My grandad was an architect and he taught me the rudiments of technical drawing when I was 9. He made me a drawing board and a T square, and showed me how to sharpen a pencil with a knife. I ventured north to York were I studied fine art at University (YSJ) and specialised in textile design. I had fun with pots of wax, resin, shiny fabrics and butterfly’s wings. From there I spent a year in Huddersfield where I studied industrial applications and CAD; fewer butterflies, more Loom Sheds! My first design job sat me in a sterile studio changing colourways of prints to match company logos and I was never allowed to get my hands dirty. I missed my fingers being permanently stained with Prussian blue, and so I started to paint again. In 1999 I moved to Sheffield, and after a while I started to sell my work in galleries, and in the art and craft markets there. I made many great friends. I moved to Hebden Bridge in 2005. Hannah at Radiance helped me to develop my lanterns.

Still do not know my area very well and limited to driving. I have my Jigidi friends :-)

MarinaNephele

Considering your ails and losses you went through this year and last, my problems are nothing. I just hope you have friends and family to stand by you.

oynot

No problem Marina, I totally understand. I come to Jigidi for the many dear friendships I nofoemed. I'm still recovering from a broken femur bone and hip bone, my husband passed away in November 2019, my brother passed away June 2020. I still have boxes that need to be unpacked, tons of paperwork. And it goes on and on. Thank you for being the friend you are :-)

MarinaNephele

Sorry Oynot for imposing my problems to your page. I need to thank you too for all the beautiful artistic puzzles your are posting. Art is soothing and inspiring at the same time to keep taking life as it comes. Thank you, my dear friend.

MarinaNephele

@RaynaGrace, thank you for the spark of hope and your kind words. I stick to the last sentence of your comment "to take care so we can be there whenever life gets better". Thank you again with all my heart.

MarinaNephele

@niccolino59, thank you for your supportive words. 2020 has been a very bad year for all humanity and every each of us pays the tribute. I'm trying to fill in the time gap right now, I used to work for 5+ hours per day in volunteering and replacing it with different activities, walking for about 2 hours per day among them, solving more and more puzzles in Jigidi bigger ones for the challenge. Thank you for the Helen Keller's motto about the open doors..

oynot

@MarinaNephele I too have been pulled away from my volunteer jobs. Hang in there, we will not be forgotten.
I want to thank @niccolino59 and @RaynaGrace for their sincere words.

RaynaGrace

@MarinaNephele, I think we all feel a bit of the same. This virus has changed life as we know it and has brought about many losses, some worse than others. Try to keep your spirits up and know you have friends here on Jigidi to chat with when you're feeling lonely and overwhelmed. Life will get better. We just have to take care so we can be there when it does.

niccolino59

Dear Marina, you need never feel lonely or useless here on jigidi. I'm so sorry you had to give up your job because of the pandemic - it's hard to adjust from something that gives us such joy & is a constant in life, but the human spirit is resilient. I pray for some little sparks of joy for you in the coming days & weeks, & hope those sparks will take hold & ignite. When one door closes, another one usually opens, although we don't always recognise it or necessarily welcome the new door. Take heart, Marina, one day at a time. x Nicco x

MarinaNephele

Beautiful autumn colours, dear Oynot. I haven't visited your lovely puzzles for some time, I had to stop my volunteering job because of the pandemic and this hurts a lot. I feel lonely and useless. I suppose life is more valuable than feeling happy they tell us. I wish I still had both..

oynot

Thank you for that redirect to MarinaNephele's puzzle, very pretty. Have a nice Friday night niccolino59 :-)

niccolino59

Ps: I found this one which MarinaNephele posted which is very similar which you may like, too:

niccolino59

I agree, & I'm glad others appreciate them too.

oynot

niccolino59 I read my 'solve' counts and there are many Jigidi members that like paintings as this one that shows reflections. What talent these artists have mastered is without words :-)

niccolino59

A beautiful scene - the reflections are amazing. I always think the illustration of swans makes the scene look peaceful & serene. I like to put a painting on full screen & then indulge in losing myself in its beauty for a few moments - sometimes more than a few moments!

oynot

Good afternoon @froinedr it is a pleasure to meet you. I hope that I may find other puzzles you may enjoy. I envy all the interesting [laces you have been. Thank you for sharing :-)

Hello Oynot, thanks you for your postings I love your "Refections". I have visited England a number of times and enjoyed many of you wonderful cities. The next time I visit there, I will try to come to Sheffield and see a gallery with you work. I live in California but hope to travel again soon, after this virus has been overcome. Thank you.

oynot

Awe thank you nanapuzzler ♥

Lovely!
Thanks for the info about the painter!

RaynaGrace

Thanks for the welcome @oynot. Nice to meet you too. Puzzling takes me places I haven't been and always brings a smile. Thanks for being a part of it especially during these trying times.

oynot

Good morning @RaynaGrace, nice to meet you. I'm happy that this may have jump started your Saturday with a smile :-)
