I went to Bath yesterday to deliver some work to a gallery, as part of the Bath Festival. It’s a smart little gallery called Gallery Nine, and my work will be there for two months. I do like Bath, it was stunning weather yesterday with good light, so it looked its best too. It has such a good range of independent galleries, and shops, I wanted to stay. We were only on a short visit but had a couple of hours to eat our picnic [the dog came too] and do a bit of flanneuring. We’ll be going again later in the summer to collect my unsold work at least.
I was in Sheffield on Saturday teaching a charming group, I did enjoy it, and I was so well looked after. So thank you Quilt Time and Norma. They are independently running themselves and have a really good programme and committed members who attend each month, and they produced some very good work on the course.
I’m not in the studio until Friday, bit of a packed week with work and travelling around, but next week is not so congested. I’ll post some images of my hornbill page, which is the one I’m currently constructing for The Stone Bird book, but meanwhile here are a couple of images of Bath.
I love basement spaces, there are lots in Bath. This wasn’t the best, but it’s quite sweet. I saw a couple of luscious ones, and indeed some dreadful spaces that needed tlc. I like courtyard gardens too, and roof top and balcony gardens. And I especially love planted walls, there’s one near my studio, I must photograph it.
