I have lots of small pieces of fabric left over from the Break Down Circle pieces so I am using them to make books. Still learning how to make them and get them looking good. Here is one of them.
In October and November, I travelled to China – a great experience. The cities were enormous often with 30 million people ie half the population of the UK. Mostly, they were modern and clean – very little of old China is left. That was reflected in art galleries and museums and even their Beijing Summer Palace and Great China Wall are not that old. The parks are very clean and beautiful with activities for the elderly communities that are provided free by the government. Buildings are tall and modern and go on for miles. Needless to say the food was fantastic made from rally fresh ingredients.
Once home, I needed to sort out Christmas for the family – a lot of internet shopping.
And for the last week I have been hard at work finishing work for CQ West’s Unfolding Stories 4 which opens in May in Stroud. Above is a taster of my work. The work isn’t actually round, just the images. Hope to see you in Stroud. Check the CQ West website for dates and times – http://www.cqwest.uk.
