Waiting for my feet to touch the ground!

A combination of computer problems and so much going on, I have been hugely neglectful here so this is something of a roundup.

Firstly at the beginning of the month there was the past graduates exhibition at Eastleigh College. Some lovely work on show and great to catch up with what everyone is doing. 

    
   
A very random selection. Several works were behind glass and impossible to capture.

Sadly the foundation degree is no more. However there is a broader based HNC starting up in the art department in which there is an opportunity to specialise in stitched textiles so all is not lost.

The next big thing was setting up the five week long exhibition staged by Zeronine textile artists at Hilliers Arboretum,  

 
The group very kindly invited me to be a guest artist for which I am very grateful. 

    
 Again just a small snapshot of what is on offer. Judging by the comments in the guest book and the number of sales, the exhibition is hugely successful. The gardens are beautiful at the moment and are also hosting a sculpture exhibition so well worth a visit.

Next week Alison Hulme and I are heading off to Birmingham to theFestival of Quilts. Fellow Room 6 members Susan Chapman and Lynn Onions will be there too. We are all in the Quilters in Action area. We welcome any visitors.

Then at the end of August I will be participating in Hampshire Open Studios as part of Room 6 at the Old Granary Owslebury.

Then it’s the Big Textile Show and the Knitting and Stitching Show and for the month of October will be part of an exhibition called ‘Stitched’ at Romsey Abbey

Phew!

Next year doesn’t look to be any less busy with a Room 6 exhibition at the Nec in March, From the Earth textiles happening in June and all 3 Knitting and Stitching Shows with Marks and Stitch in the Autumn.
