On the walk into the small town centre in search of batteries for Bob's flashlight, we passed many interesting vistas. The contrasts in texture between hard stone and soft petals of flowering apricot and apple trees were everywhere.
These threshing boards were something we had never seen before. Small sharp rocks were set into the wood. No idea how old they are but they look well worn.
Soft faded blue of the timber door contrasts with the raised surround, painted white.
Loved this jacket, detail here of the interesting embroidery stitching. The inside was unlined making another interesting texture. This was hanging on the side of a building decorated with a myriad of colourful rugs and carpets.
Travel is an exciting & large part of my life, combined with creating fabric, stitching art quilts & enjoying textile traditions around the world.
I work in the quilting industry; exhibit, judge, curate, tutor & write.
These are some of the threads of my life.
