While visiting my friend, Sarah, in Dorset we took a day to revisit our childhood haunts in Southampton. We both loved the art gallery and that was our first stop. We reveled in the beauty of The Perseus Series by Edward Burne Jones, a favourite of our teenage selves. Still looking stunning in its own wood paneled room. What memories lie here.

I am thrilled to have an image of one of my pieces appear in a paper written by Arnaud Quertinmont, Department Egypte/Proche-Orient Conservateur at Musee royal de Mariemont in Morlanwelz, Belgium. This paper was written to accompany an exhibit currently showing at the museum called De Lin et De Laine. Textiles Egyptiens Du 1er Millenaire. It highlights coptic textiles from the museum's collection.

I love these two signs. They illustrate the message with alarming hilarity.

I bought some natural dye extracts from Maiwa on Granville Island in Vancouver and have been experimenting with them for the past few weeks. Gorgeous colours and a slow, meditative process. This is the first batch of dyes on various silk fabrics.
