The journey in history started over a year ago, from walks in the hills I discovered these abandoned cottages and homesteads.
Who lived, worked, laughed and died here?
I started to create work based on these loose, unformed ideas and thoughts.
The work can be seen here on the Trackways page.
I decided I wanted to learn more about this history and started a two year Masters Degree in History, specialising in the women of the Border Lands. It’s rather taken over my life but I am still sewing (mostly hares) and I do have lots of new ideas and adventures to look forward to.
A few pages from my sketchbook are shown below.
The journey into this new series of textile works will start soon.
