New Floor

Because I had a new floor put down in the studio it meant that I had to address the chaos that had been before. Cop the buttons and beads!
Now there are still some areas which need attention

I long to get it organised so I can begin to "play".

Actually the "play" is getting serious with the exhibition looming.

In the middle of the night decided to put all the pieces I might show together,( that meant folding up and hiding a spare bed and making another before I could lay them out)

Well I did all that and then felt truly anxious...I have enough but then I question the standard.

I guess unlike juried shows you always ask this question.

These are some felt and stitched pieces they are in my "Indian " room .I have the photos I took whilst away and put them under the glass and behind are some "pages" that my group did for me with India as their title.

Below is a beautiful shisha quilt I bought while I was there. I met the lady who made it in this tiny remote village, it took her a year to make ,it is tiny, fine work.

It is so humbling to see what fantastic artistic work comes from such a simple set of modest circumstances

Janette these pieces for the exhibition are wonderful...I love the felted pieces.

The Shiska quilt is amazing and what a wonderful thing to be able to meet the person who has stitched this.
