More Boro.......

First I must correct an omission in my last post.  When I was at the exhibition on Tuesday I was delighted to meet Caroline Moore from Made by Caroline. She has posted pictures of the exhibition, guess who that is taking photographs. Caroline has a beautiful piece that she is working and her blog is well worth exploring.  I couldn't resist, I had to go back to the exhibition at Somerset House which ends tomorrow. This time I went with my daughter who loved it too. This was her favourite piece

amd this is one of mine (I wanted them all)
This is a side view giving and idea of the mounting.
This kimono(the only one) shows wear  where it has worn presumably from things being carried on the back.

I wondered what joy this little fragment of pattern would have given.
A magical piece of darning.

I leave the rest to speak for themselves.
