Show time.....

Yesterday was the exhibition at the Sevenoaks EG. I wish I could show you all of the wonderful pieces from cushions to boxes, from tiny handbags op wall hangings, so much to see but I can only show you my pieces. Three of them were made some time ago but the last is what has been keeping me quiet for the last couple of months.


I called this one "seascape", someone asked if it was displayed the right way up so I guess I should have called it "seaweed"....

This is Scotney Castle in Kent, it is one of my favoourite National Trust places. The gardens are beautiful in any season but on a clear Autumn day they stun.


This is an interpretation of one of my favourite photographs which I took in Annecy in France.
And this is my book, inspired by Beryl Taylor and by the Sharon B's TAST challemce. It is not all the stitches, there was originally going to be two books but this one took so long perhaps next year......

What a lovely book Pat! Is it 'sinister' because you're left handed? :o)

OOOOOOOO the Seascape is beautiful! I especially like the "foam" treatment in the bottom right--nice and lacey and splashy-ish :}

All your work is beautiful Pat, such neat stitchery. I love the book too - what a wonderful keepsake of all the stitches worked. This will be better than a text book for a future generation of stitchers. Hope the exhibition went well for you.
