We went to the opening of an exhibition in Stroud last night, 'Conversations and Collaborations.'
A couple of our friends had their work on display.
Mary La Trobe Bateman OBE, patron for the Stroud International Textiles introduced Joanna Foster, who was opening the exhibition. Both women were wonderfully dressed, in lovely fabrics of bright, bold pattern. They were both in red and black and took a surprised look at each other when they first met in the gallery! There was such a crush of people at the opening speech that I could not get a photograph of them together. I caught up with Mary later to admire her wonderful jacket and her scarlet tights and shoes, which are sadly in the shadow in my photo and not displaying their vibrant colour.
I WANT SOME SCARLET SHOES!
Joanne Foster CBE is chair of The Crafts Council and President of the Oxfordshire Crafts Guild. You can see what a matching pair they made!
Curator, Alice Kettle.
I was rather monochrome myself. Gap grey cotton lawn blouse, LBD at least thirty years old!
Black tights and Duo suede shoes.
We drove to Stroud in the rain and we came back home in yet another downpour.
That's it, Im packing my bag.
I will not be visible on Visible Monday, I'm going in search of some sunshine before it starts to web between my toes.
