I ended the year, as I started with drawing which has continued to be a focus this year. Thankyou to Helen Frost for supplying this lovely image of my hands hard at work at West Dean College. where I was teaching earlier this month.
I heavy cold meant hearth and home over the Christmas season. By boxing day I was itching to get out and well wrapped up went for a walk in my local park.
I was thrilled to start the year as the cover girl for Cloth Paper Scissors before my guest exhibition at Visions Art Museum in San Diego.
This was followed by exhibitions with Art Textiles Made in Britain at the Festival of Quilts and a project Stuff For Thought a shared project of textile artist Heidi Drahota and the Human Rights Office of the City of Nuremberg.
As the Autumn turned to winter I exhibited locally in Kent and London. While exhibiting with Books Pavilion I was informed that all of my publications were going into reprint again at the same time. Loved the installation of Tea Flora Tales from 'In the Pilgrim's Footsteps 'exhibition (seen here with my Red Trees) at St Mary's Church Burham, organised by textile artist Rosie James
|Detail of Tea Flora Tales. Thankyou to the individuals, groups and Embroiderer's Guild members who have continued to create pieces to support this project.|
I continue to enjoy the challenges these set for me and the opportunity to meet with new ideas, people and makers as well as re-affirm existing professional friendships. Thankyou to all who continue to support my work and bless you all with as many new and exciting projects you wish for and the health of your family and friends.
Time for a cuppa.
