My Mother knitted. One of the earliest sounds I remember is that of her knitting needles. She knitted clothes for me to dress my dolls as well as clothing for us. A knitted vest was to keep my favourite doll warm and cosy.
In 2010 for the Brunel Broderers exhibition “Curious Drawers” I worked on a ‘small intimate collection of hand-made items from four generations of family – precious treasures made for each other and displayed in an old jeweller’s cabinet of drawers. I produced my own stitched response to each one. Hand-made, handled with care’.
The exhibition was part of the 2010 Stroud International Textile Festival
I blogged about it on the BB blog here
