This is my latest hanging of wild arum, arum maculatum, using organzas and polyesters on a velvet background. They have interesting names- starch root, cows and bulls, snake head, jack-in- the - pulpit, lords and ladies.
I've hung it in my shed ready for the Trail that starts on Saturday 9th May.
The bumpy lane has had some bags of road stone, the driveway a sweep and my gorgeous Banksia rose is approaching full bloom. I do hope the weather improves, it's really cold and windy at the moment.
This afternoon I gave a talk to Worcester Embroiderers. They are a large, very friendly group with 80 members with a waiting list to join, which is wonderful.
Annie Hutchinson is coming tomorrow to put her work up. I can't wait to see it.
Newark Park was busy on Bank Holiday Monday. The views from the house across towards the Severn are stunning and there is a lovely walk through the woods with banks of wild garlic. We've got our own crop at home and it makes a tasty pesto.
The wallpaper exhibition in the top floor of the house is small but fascinating. The hand embroidered wallpaper on silk was extraordinary and I also liked the digitally embroidered designs.
