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.

Just add butter and pepper- April 2014

Just add butter and pepper- April 2014

Surrounding our village there are several fields in which asparagus (asperges) is grown. It is ready to be cut during the months of March and April, using an asparagus knife. We prefer ours to be green, slender and tender, cooked lightly and eaten with butter and pepper.

The asparagus and triangles are fused to the background fabric, the blade of the knife is painted and the lettering machine embroidered. I love machine quilting, so there is lots of that.
