Peeling Portals and Kew Petition
Very worrying times at Kew at the moment, 125 jobs to go, until the new science strategy is in place I don't know whether my job is secure and whatever happens , things will be very different. I worry that in chasing other funding sources we'll no longer be able to do the conservation work we're known for.
So sign the petition, ( overseas supporters can do so too, ) and if you're in the UK, ask your MP to support the Early Day Motion
Cretan doors, I've returned to finishing off some WIPs ( Works-in-Progress) completing quilting and cutting back through the laminated organza of 'Peeling Portals', companion piece to ' Every Wall is a Door'. I missed the deadline for Sandown Quilt show - at 24 inches square it's too small for entry in other competitions. Maybe next year! Just needs binding and sleeve putting on now.
