{ unexpected }

In London, for New Designers, and came across one of Dorothy Caldwell's enormous quilts. And it wasn't behind glass, or in the distance, or guarded by anyone. So I could have a good look at the detail. It's a mix of hand stitch and print, on a huge scale. Did a workshop with her a while ago and we tried to work out if we each had our own stitching handwriting, which was interesting.

{ red dots }

first day of the Studio Trail yesterday. started slowly, with lots of rain, but had a lovely afternoon when the sun and the visitors came out. happy that some of my pictures have found new homes with Debbie, Ian, and Tim & Greta. and happy to share my sketchbooks with a succession of thoughtful junior school-aged girls, who sat quietly and went through every single page, asking questions and telling me about their drawings.
