Signature III at The Greenstede Gallery

I went to an excellent exhibition by Zero3 in East Grinstead today. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

I had seen some of the pieces on the Zero3 website but the work is so much more impressive in real life. The Greenstede Gallery often has textile exhibitions at this time of year. It's a good space for textiles, there is plenty of parking at reasonable rates and there is a nice cafeteria in the adjacent Chequer Mead leisure centre.

Keep going! Ottoman inspiration

You know how it is - you get so far with a project and you can't wait to see if it has worked. I couldn't wait to take this off the pattern and hold it up. So I kept on filling it in, and here it is:

Nothing fell off! But I think I've said before, it's not as neat as I would like. I plan to stitch a shiny washer into the round hole at the bottom. Not sure what I will do with it after that.........

Ottoman Inspiration - WIP

I may have bitten off more than I can chew here!

This isn't as neat as I would like, and I'm finding it difficult to start and end threads tidily.
