My final pieces for the "Cornwall.Collected" exhibition

I was really pleased that I managed to finish seven pieces of work to exhibit at The Poly in Falmouth last week. Here are my final pieces. One was sold last week and there is interest in a couple of others, and for the first time in my new stitching career I think I feel ready to let them go! 
I hope you enjoy seeing the work, and thanks for reading our blog, Chris

Counting the days...

Just over a week now until we hang our Cornwall.Collected. Exhibition. 13th - 17th September at the Poly, Falmouth.

If you'd like a sneak preview then check out our Facebook page where Chris will be posting detailed pictures each day.

As you will see below my project is on the Clay Works. I was also inspired by the patterns on broken china found by my children, Troika Pottery and Carn Pottery.

Here's a few pages from my Poll Pri sketchbook, which I'll have with me on the days I'm stewarding.

Being a Cornish maid I would love to be able to say I could speak the Cornish language, but unfortunately not. However, all my pieces have Cornish titles and Poll Pri means clay pit.

Hope you'll be able to visit and say hello.
