More books.


New books arrived today adding to my library. Each one brings a different perspective to the story of the Bayeux Tapestry.

The real world of the Bayeux Tapestry by Michael J Lewis.

In this introduction to the Tapestry, Michael Lewis looks not only at the story of the Tapestry itself, but also explores the design and production of this great artifact, and looks at how reliable the evidence it presents for 1066 actually is. This is a fresh and dynamic approach to one of the 11th century’s most famous survivors.

The Bayeux Tapestry New Interpretations.

Edited by Dan Terkla, Martin Foys and Karen Eileen Overbey, the book is a collection from a combination of well-established scholars and voices new to Tapestry studies. “We truly hope to live up to the title of the book, New Interpretations,” said Terkla. “Not only does the book take a multi-disciplinary approach, with scholars from fields ranging from history to art to Anglo-Saxon studies contributing, but its particular mix of seasoned and young scholars can provide a new perspective.”

The other two books are for the grandchildren.

I had a photography assignment to complete, the written ones hang like lead weight around my neck, and I feel a huge relief when they are done, but the practical side is a joy.

Specially when I ended up with the the hot and cold shivers and a tummy bug, I'm falling to pieces folk.

I think I'm in a bit of a rut… the big quilt has taken over my life, it occurred to me that I may be in danger of loosing my creative ambition if I don't experiment with other things…so I quilted another quilt today. It felt wonderful.

Maybe it's just feeling ill that brings on the feeling.

So, I've had some extra rest over the past couple of days…  but the coming  weekend is full of family involvement and it's going to be HOT… fabulous.


Our Fringe festival begins tomorrow and I will be there with bells on. Adelaide Fringe is an annual open-access arts festival run over 24 days and nights in Adelaide, South Australia during February and March.

Unlike a curated festival, the open-access nature of Adelaide Fringe means that anyone with a show, exhibition or cultural event is able to register and be part of Australia’s largest arts event. The result is one of the most diverse arts festivals in the world, renowned for fresh ideas, spontaneity and fun.

I love it.

    Have a great time at the Festival and enjoy a well deserved break. Everyone can suffer burnout when faced with a long term ambitious project, no matter how much you want to succeed. It is always good to renergize and regain enthusiasm for a project.
