Thank you Lizzie

A cardboard box was carried into my studio this afternoon and look what was in it!
Thank you Lizzie

as I unpacked the very fragile pieces they just seem made to go with what I have been working on today. Hope to use them somehow in my installation at Old St Stephens later in the summer.

Semana Santa

As we move into Holy Week I wish I was here

Rosie's village, Zuheros, in Southern Spain. We have spent many happy hours hanging about every day and into the night hanging about on the tiny streets of this village and have felt privileged to be onlookers and moved by the spectacle itself.Its not all visual, its the beat of the drum going on often all through the night and hearing local women spontaneously moved to sing as the virgin passes by.

The Shop Floor Project

Have a look at the Shop Floor Project's blog for today ( listed as The Shopkeepers Journal in Blogs I am following). My daughter has just embarked on a massive screen printing project documenting some strange British folk customs. This range called Country Pursuits is available exclusively from them. If you sign up to their e- newsletter you get some lovely tempting products appearing regularly in your in box.
Alice is also featured in May's Marie Claire with her Royal Wedding celebratory poster.. She is overtaking me!

There are still some places left on the "Precious Memories" course I am running at MAKE in Allendale on May 22nd. See http://makerecycledcraftworkshop.bigcartel.com for booking details. One of the big attractions of the course, apart from learning to bring together special sentimental items into a textile collage like this, must surely be the lovely lunch provided by the Allendale Bakery next door and a chance to work with a small number of other students in Kate Jackson's inspirational workplace.
