Wow the waves have it! The colors sing loudly, beautifully, the stitches in the upper left corner cry to be seen more.

Such beautiful photos. I am being inspired by the glorious Autumn light and peeling paint on driftwood.

Dear Carolyn,

I start with a massive Thank-you. Your blog is so inspiring, as a developing artist I have learned so much from you and your passion for textiles.
You're uniqueness is one of the many qualities you hold that envies me the most.

I would be very interested to talk to you with more depth. I'm hoping to travel down to St Ives soon and hopefully catch the beauty of your coast.

Thank you again. True artist
