Nearly forgot about this it was so long ago……completed a commission for The New York Times T Magazine back in 2009 and only today have a realised they published it late last year in T Design Fall 2010. Now the task is trying to get my hand on a back issue…..hhhmmmm.
Here’s a couple of screen grabs of the issue

Fly Away Home @ SIT

After a long week of pinning and threading, I finally completed Fly away home, but not without the pinning expertise of my boyfriend, who I ended up roping in last minute to help me meet the deadline. So before  I commence showing you the finished piece, I would like to say a big Thank You to Zac. Other people I would like to thank are the staff at the Museum in the Park, Lizzi Walton and also Imelda Hughes for accompanying me to the opening of SIT, introducing me to a lot of lovely people and making it an altogether more fun experience.
So without further ado, here’s some images of Fly away Home which is part of the Exhibition WORDPLAY at the Museum in the Park, Stroud. 

Other artists involved in Wordplay are Jessica Turrell, Tilleke Schwarz, Clyde Olliver, Lynn Setterington and Lauren Steeper.
Visit Stroud International Textiles for more information on the exhibition
Show runs until the 22nd May
