Travel, home and away, plus a new gallery

September and October have been a fun months for me with a bit of holiday travel combined with some textile work (of course!).

A few days in the Lake District with good weather gave me an opportunity to take some great photographs. Such inspiring scenery in Langdale with lakes, mossy walls and mountains. This was swiftly followed by a 4 day trip with the family to Rome. Not a place inspirational for my embroideries in the way of lush English countryside but a wonderful city with fabulous architecture at evey turn. We walked over 24 miles in 4 days, so we certainly saw a lot of the city!

Before I set off for my 6 weeks in Australia I selected a few of my embroideries to have on display at a new gallery. A few local scenes with an autumnal theme, including 2 pieces inspired by one of my favourite places, Ellesmere. So…

The Copper Tree Gallery in Tarporley, Cheshire now has a collection of my embroideries. This is a new venue for me in a beautiful part of the country. My work will be on display from October 18th until Christmas. I do hope you can get there to see them, the gallery is easy to find in the High Street.

For my next blog I will be in Australia, where it will be a bit warmer! I start my trip in Canberra which is new location for me, so I am really looking forward to being there.
