<![CDATA[time to reflect on the Knitting stitching Shows]]>Sun, 25 Jan 2015 11:07:17 GMThttp://asmalldesign.weebly.com/blog/time-to-reflect-on-the-knitting-stitching-shows

Its now some time since the shows (October and November 2013) but what a great show.  2 years of hard work to prepare.
The response was phenomenal.  "best in show" was written in the comments book so many times.

Thanks you to all those that visited and especially to those who made a purchase.

getting back down to some new work is going to be hard.

<![CDATA[Then off to the V and A]]>Fri, 23 Jan 2015 14:42:28 GMThttp://asmalldesign.weebly.com/blog/then-off-to-the-v-and-aWith weary legs we decided to visit just a few chosen galleries at my old favourite the V and A.  The Jewellery display did not disappoint.  This piece here was paper mache

Both these pieces are featured in a V & A book that I purchased several years ago but nothing beats seeing them for real.

<![CDATA[trip to London]]>Fri, 23 Jan 2015 14:25:26 GMThttp://asmalldesign.weebly.com/blog/trip-to-londonLovely day out yesterday with Jackie and Christina at National Portrait Gallery.  Here they are with a Grayson Perry Pot.  It depicts a same sex couple with their adopted mixed race child. A new modern family?

This is one of Perry's silk screen prints. On the left is the Ashford retail park, filled with all the posh shops and in the background you see what our old shopping centres are beginning to look like with charity shops, off licences and empty shops.

This was one of my fav pictures in the gallery of a young Royal Family with princess Margaret looking so stylish.
