Since posting this update I have had further thoughts about this folder. Two wide front sections makes the folder too cumbersome, the back is the perfect width. What I have now done is to tear back some of the paper frame surrounding the left hand drawn thread work (11.16) so the front pages fold over one another. The opening will have to change. Visually this may be better as the paper frames were the same width previously.

What a fun day! I met fellow Distant Stitch student Judith A off the train at Bath Spa and we drove up to the American Museum at Claverton. I had never met Judith before - we had only emailed and talked on Facebook. The reason for meeting was to visit the recently opened Kaffe Fassett exhibition. It was a real cacophony of colour and from the moment we arrived I knew we were about to experience something special. Just look at the lamp and tree decorations! Inside we were able to see examples of Kaffe’s amazing work – drawings, knits galore, hats, needlepoint, wall hangings, cushions, quits, you name it, it was there.
Here are some of my photos:
Thank you so much for your company, Judith. If only we could have had a Distant Stitch outing, think of all the chatter.
