Salisbury Talk

Met some really wonderful members of the evening group of the Salisbury branch of the Embroiderers Guild. They had invited me to give them my talk on "Stitch and Distort".

Strange emotions today, very sad attendance at Auntie's funeral and pleasure to see members of the family.

Had an interesting afternoon in Town today, which is quite an unusual event these days.... but if you are around I think you might like to go and visit the Open studios. They were taking photos for the blog as I was going around yesterday. have a look here . The event finishes tomorrow as sadly it only runs for the weekend.

My "faces" work has been delivered to Barnstable Museum for the Exhibition, which is running until November 7th 2009. So if you happen to be passing do go in and have a look. Let me know what you think too please. The art has been created over a period of time, as it seems that however hard I might try to change the focus away from faces.... they keep coming back. I have sold many of these in the past.... but thesein the exhibition are the latest pieces.
I am now in the process of working towards the next exhibition starting in October, which is at Radley College Abingdon. The work is well under way as you can see, but I really do not need all the help being offered by Mr Siamese - who does like to sit on the work whilst I am trying to stitch. Wish me luck!
