Tweedy dog

Speaking of dogs here's a lovely one I saw today. His title is Scottish Deerhound and he reminded me of all the tweedy fabrics we worked with when making work for the Suited exhibition a couple of years ago, using recovered fabrics from a tailors workshop.
He took artist/sculptor Barbara Franc three weeks to make and will be at the gallery 44AD along with other sculpture, ceramics, textiles, painting until 29th March - The Bucks stop here


Takes all my time so no new work to show. Carolyn,

 Mentioned in this post here Kay and I met in Chapel Arts Cafe in Bath
The sharing of work, discussing ideas, looking at threads - all make for rich dialogue.
This image represents that to me with my burnt orange thread lying in amongst Kay's work.
It's a precious thing about the BB's - this sharing...
