For this piece I went back into my collection of fabrics and embellishments from Africa. Loving Rome but missing Africa. We are also making preparations for Graham's retirement, buying a house in Yorkshire! Traveling for 3 weeks to visit friends and our eldest daughter in Zimbabwe and Johannesbrg over the holidays. Making plans, arranging visits from friends for next year (we seem to almost run a bed and breakfast!) With so much going on I enjoyed working with my bits and bobs quietly, in my space for a while. Bark cloth, cotton fabrics and banana leaf covered wires. Mostly hand stitched.
