Art time yesterday was spent stitching on the appliqué wall hanging I’m doing for City and Guilds. I think I’ve posted enough ‘in progress’ pics of that – the hand stitching is taking a long time, but I want it to be finished next time you see it!

In the evening we went down to the Kendal Torchlight Carnival, a procession of marching bands, Caribbean carnival bands, heavy horses, steam engines and decorated floats. I haven’t quite mastered the art of night-time photography but a few pics did come out OK. I love seeing the dramatic carnival costumes and the dancing and drumming is so exciting.

    Hi Fiona – thanks for your comment on my blog – the studio is further on now though currently covered in debris from the journal quilt. Interesting to see the photos above: two of the costumes from the Leeds Carnival also made it to Kendal I see (the big yellow one – I think – I have a photo of it on my blog if it is the same) and the one with the animal skin design. If you want to see some really good photos of Leeds Carnival try:
    – he also gave me permission to use his photos as the basis for some of the stuff on the JQ.
    Love your embroidery BTW
