My third postcard

My third postcard is from Marion at Embroidered Origionals. I'm hoping to meet her at Gardening Scotland next week, but we might not be there on the same day.

What can I say? I knew Marion was studying ethnic patterns, but look at this.



This is gorgeous, finely cut sparkly organza, such colors. All three cards have had beautiful tiny stitches.

I am spellbound. Thank you so much.

Last night I went on a studio visit over to Plockton, about a 40 minute drive on the mainland, with a friend from the Sleat peninsular, Patricia Shone a ceramicist. It was organised by a new group called Aos (said ooze, meaning a collective, I think, in Gaelic) formed when the Art Certre in Portree closed down. They arrange visits, talks & workshops & send regular info about what's happening here & away. Vital when you're living on a faraway island. The Treeroot Studio is owned by Jane Inglis, showing her jewellery & mixed media pieces, her mother Barbara's textile pieces,Patricias pots  & another member of the group's work, Emma Noble, a printmaker. All of it really beautiful work.



On the way home the view just before the house looked pretty great, so I took a shot - you can just about see the narrow rainbow in the passing shower.

The exhibition is beautiful as you say Emma, thank you for showing it to us. Another lovely card too and that view does your soul good.

Found your blog through Fibrefrolics. I'm on Tiree, we can see the faraway Cuillin from the west end of the island on a very clear day :-) . That looks like a lovely gallery.

Glad you like the postcard.
We're just this minute back after a few days away in Stornoway. We've had a lovely time -never been to the Outer Hebrides before. But it's back to work tomorrow. Maybe see you next weekend at Gardening Scotland.

Thanks for the virtual outing and samples of art from your part of the world. It seems like you are neighbors because the art and interests are so much like mine. Wish I could take the ferry and be there in 40 minutes!!
