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.
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.
IN PRINT- part of an exhibition at Redditch Textile Museum.I was inspired by the patterns humans and animals leave on the landscape -which disappear as rain falls or grass covers them .
