Seems like a long time since I have shown any of my own work but I have been teaching all over the place for the last 4 months and then have been on holiday in Sweden. The folk art there was truly inspirational and I am sure will influence future work when I have time to absorb what I have seen. I have been working on things for an exhibition at Christmas and also just making collages as I love to do. I found this Turkey Red peacock within another quilt, carefully unpicked it from its surface and have now mixed it up with a bit of an old Irish quilt and placed it in a flower bed. The design for the flowers were taken from an image of an American embroidered bed hanging of 1765.
