We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

Fussen to Ripponden
At the beginning of September Mark and I cycled from Fussen (in Germany - close to the Austrian border). It was about 1400kms. We cycled first along the Romantic Road cycle route and then joined the Rhein Radweg. It was generally flat so we could cycle at least 100kms a day. I wanted to make a long thin quilt so made 2 quilts 5" x 20" and have joined them together. I drew it all out carefully choosing buildings, significant things we saw along the way. I made each quilt in white with dark brown stitching and then added the colour afterwards. I coloured the sky to match the weather.
