I'm teaching a Pojagi workshop this evening so I have been busy dyeing and preparing fabrics so that everyone can have a go at this relaxing hand stitched technique and maybe make a small wrapping cloth.
Earlier today I went walking with a school friend ( we go back a long way as we met when we were 5 years old!). We tramped through meadows of very long grass close to the River Avon in Pershore, before relaxing over a delicious lunch. Just before the rain started we went to see Pershore Abbey which dates back to the 10th century. In the grounds was this beech tree stump which had been carved by Tom Harvey and inspired by local school children.
The abbey is rather like a patchwork with evidence of sections no longer standing and many additions. I particularly liked these window shapes
and this door
The hinges look far too large but rather gorgeous!
Must load the car now, speak to you soon.
