Flowers and Trees in the Botanic Garden

After visiting the Freewheeling exhibition the other weekend, we wandered on to the Botanic Garden in Edinburgh.  It was gloriously sunny, which made it great for photography.  So here are some gorgeous flower and tree photos.  I'm not a gardener or botanist, so I have no idea what they are, I just enjoy the colours, textures and shapes.

I take lots of photos of flowers and trees but they rarely make it into my artwork - one day they will feed through as inspiration, but I still have to get the rocks and stones out of my system first!

Freewheeling Quilt Exhibition in Edinburgh

Yesterday we spent the day in Edinburgh so I could visit Freewheeling's latest exhibition at the Dundas Gallery on Dundas St.
It was great to see their work in a gallery setting and there was a lovely variety of work on show.
The exhibition continues to Thursday 11 May 2017 - well worth a visit if you can make it.    Otherwise you can find out more about the group here:

Quilt Heritage at the Knitting & Stitching Show

Last weekend I had the pleasure of being on the Quilters' Guild exhibition stand at the Knitting & Stitching Show in Edinburgh.  It was lovely being able to spend time amongst such beautiful old quilts and seeing visitors' reactions to them.  As I was there on the Sunday, I helped pack them all away, which meant I was able to look at the backs too and get a sense of how they felt (although definitely through white gloves to help conserve the quilts!).  These are some photos of the quilts.

As well as the older quilts, there was fab work by Effie Galletly and the 62 Group amongst others.  The show felt more substantial than last year and it was great to visit and be a part of it.
