Thank you to everyone who told me I must read and would love Handywoman by Kate Davies. You weren’t wrong & at least the 3/4 finished Rams & Yowes is out of the bag. It’s the steek, the thought of it terrifies the living daylights out of me. I mean what could possibly go right?
Finally here is the unpicked and reset ‘Resurgam’. Thirty years after the blocks were made by one of the ‘students’ in a class I was teaching, the exquisite stitching and piecing in their work finally sees the light of day at an exhibition. Its life to date spent scrunched in a bag & unwanted until it resurfaced and found its way back to me through an extraordinary chain of chance & circumstance. Loved all over again.
