Stitches in time....

Dick Kerrs Ladies



Yesterday I went to Preston to have lunch and a catch with my friends from Uni, whilst there I took the opportunity to visit the Harris Gallery. They are currently holding an exhibition called stitches in time. I really enjoyed the exhibition and here are a few of the lovely items on display. Unfortunately the room is quite dark to protect the items from the light and whilst you where allowed to take photographs you where not allowed to use the flash. I think my favourite item in the exhibition was the child's bonnet. It is amazing, made of linen and it is all hand quilted. I stood staring at it for ages I was mesmerised.

The bonnet is beautiful and I love that sort of work. Do you see Stitch magazine? The Feb/March issue from this year has a stunning quilt by Jacquie Harvey which you may like.
