Thanks to Amanda of View From Our Hill I visited the Hand and Heart exhibition of painted quilts by Linda and Laura Kemshall at the Cynon Valley Gallery in Aberdare. If you are able to get there before it closes on Saturday Sept 10th DO GO.
It is magnificent and so inspirational. I bought the video and having studied it had my first go at painting the clouds on beach huts. These need more work so I won't be putting them up yet.
In my last blog I mentioned that god daughter Harriet had been making lovely little knitted dogs, the schnauzer was a hit with Sarah who has a real one. Harriet's flying needles will be creating another soon with a red collar and black pads. She and my other god daughter sister Rose are both talented artists.
Last summer when I couldn't find a blind to match my new bathroom, Harriet spent the holidays before going up to uni painting me one. It was based on a landscape by Munsch (he of The Scream) with fabric paints . I think it's really stunning. Even better, the bathroom is at the top the stairs so I can enjoy it ever time I go up them.
