The alarm on the cell phone rang at 3.30 am, and then a few seconds later the shrill of the phone by the bed encouraged me to get up. I’m not complaining, I slept well, but it’s probably the part of travel I like the least. I enlisted the help of the bell boy and he carried my luggage to the shuttle to go to the airport. My flight was at 6.00 am to phoenix and I worked on the Bayeux book most of the way. I’m researching right now and I have the book, A needle in the right hand of God, the Norman Conquest of 1066 by Howard R, Bloch. I have the book on kindle and I can also read it on the iPad or the computer, but I also have it on my Iwatch in the spoken word. So with earphones in ears and iPad propped in front of me the environment of flight is dissolved into the background as I work. After Phoenix I flew to Monterrey CA and then …
I photograph and film wherever I travel, this is a small film I made in Sydney. Of course there is the wonderful texture of the Opera House and beautiful paintings from the Gallery.
So as I undertake yet another journey, I will ‘Capture the images and Create Textile Art’ and I will share it as I go.
The class is filling fast (almost 3/4 full in 24 hours) thanks to everyone for sharing in this experience.

So the Sockittome quilt is done. My 5th quilt since Christmas and I managed another 20 feet of the Bayeux so I’m rather pleased as I pack them all in my bag to travel.
I’m highly allergic to all fresh fruit and veggies, I have to eat everything cooked, but I love my own home grown tomatoes and in doing so this is what my lips look like each summer. No botox, none of that filler stuff. The green grass surrounds the veggie patch and I pick the tomatoes and lay them on the grass, hence this strange quilt.
I love the food, the people, the colors, the textures and the culture. Jim and I have been working on a tour to Thailand for a few years now, and trust me, this will be a tour with a difference.
To be really honest, I had no idea how I was going to quilt the piece. By that I mean that turquoise. The socks are dimensional with shading by pencil following the shadow underneath the sock. Handling the piece has rubbed some of the pencil off, but I will re do it when the stitching is finished.
