Knit and Stitch and Sketchbook Project 2012

 Went to Knit and Stitch at Alexandra Palace today - mainly to see Color Improvisations which was as spectacular as I expected - seeing work in the flesh I'd only seen on websites/photos. Most were machine quilted but the variety of effects achieved was interesting , from loose variagated to very dense stiching which gave the effect of  kantha/ mokume, adding a new dimension. Makes me want to work BIG!! Among the other exhibits I  liked the work of the 62 Group, Sian Martin  and Hazel Bruce in particular.
Tomorrow I hope to get to the Sketchbook Project 2012 exhibit at Canada Water Library, to see my own  sketchbook again and other on the theme of the 'Grey Side of  Life'
