edinburgh festival

I have just finished another series of great workshops with Pat Archibald which inspired me to create this quilt for the annual festival exhibition. Inspired by Sanjusangendo temple in Kyoto, the temple of the 3,000 Buddhas- the emotions it evokes for me- the strangeness of the orient but also the warmth.

time in my studio and kitchen

When I was in Harris earlier this year the weather kept me happily inside my studio watching it from the window while I worked. In between when searching for inspiration, I also tried out new recipes on my husband who is always appreciative- crab and asparagus clafoutis and Greek courgette slice were the winners.
