For centuries women have used cloth as a tool of comfort and as an expression of beauty within their homes. Creating cloth for warmth, cloth for shelter, our female predecessors embellished these linens with hand stitch using laborious and time consuming techniques thereby enhancing the functional beauty of objects which enveloped and protected their families. Inspired by these women I hope my creations pay tribute to and recognise the devotion expressed in cloth by our female ancestors .

I tried desperately to read what was on your list - but I need better glasses. Although, I'm hoping the first on the list says "Plan More Books"
(That's not nagging, is it?)

I've looked again - I think it's "Print" NOT "Plan"

I inherited a love of lists from my mother, dad always used to say she should have a list of her lists. There is something very satisfying about being able to cross out things on a list

If that light casting shadows is sunlight.... I am so jealous. I'm in dire need of a tiny bright ray right now to lift the grey doldrums.

I need to write lists...and consult them and then tick off things. I've started writing them in my art journal. Seems to be more fun that way.

Oh, yes, lists are a must. I have lists of everything. Lists allow your mind to be creative because all of the simple things are written down.
