Deadlines and Work in Progress

There is nothing like a deadline to focus the mind and the making.

This wire and cane triptych will be at the NEC next week.  Sewing for Pleasure is a great show, a mixture of exhibition and retail stands under one roof.

Please come and see us at the Gathered Memories stand.

Please help to safeguard British publicly owned Art

I just signed the petition “Her Majesty’s Government: Save Southampton’s £200m Art Collection (a test case for all British publicly owned art)” on Change.org.

It’s important. Will you sign it too? Here’s the link:

More Containers

There is a trend developing.  More containers:  these are fabric ones, painted, stitched into shape and waxed for stability.  They are displayed inside a wire shape.  The wire represents the fences and boundaries I find endlessly fascinating and the containers are all about the space defined within.

These are part of the Gathered Memories exhibition at the National Needlework Archive near Newbury from Saturday 1 Feb to Friday 14 March.

Now for something completely different

 

Hidden History: HedgerowsI have been having fun with split cane, weaving small containers and stitching into them.  These are inspired by the hedgerows I walk along most days.
