SEW ... A NEEDLE PULLING THREAD

a day at purple bay
a new textile piece created for the show which starts on Sunday
it called "a day at purple bay" and was inspired by a shell that my friend Julie found on the beach at Hayle Towans a while back ... 
(it sat in my box for a while waiting to go on just the right piece)

it also features waxed papers, silk, hand stitching and shells
and the piece comes framed ready to hang

I now have the dates when Jo and I will be attending the show which is open from 10.30 till 4.30 pm each day including Sundays.  We very much look forward to meeting you and sharing our work

I love the colour of this piece. Good Luck with the show. It is such a shame that I live so far away from St. Ives to come and see it.
