A couple of weeks ago I actually managed to spend a couple of hours drawing in the wild flower garden at The Hearth. It was just going over but hope I managed to capture some of the atmosphere of this slightly over run area which gives a lot of pleasure to our visitors.

I recently visited the wonderful American Museum in Bath I was much taken with the quilt room and particularly the red embroidered quilt in their collection. I came back and drew this fox in red stitching relating it to my local quilt tradition by using a piece of north country turkey red strippy and the flowers were unpicked from a north country eiderdown. The horse is a detail from the quilt in the American Museum www.http://americanmuseum.org/
