And some of the time they live happily ever after.
But there is usually some tension along the way.
I need to make my work as true as I can.
I rely on the archetypal shapes of circle, cross and dot and use them as language.
They are the backs I suppose.
I plan to display them so that the original 'first side' will not be shown.
I don't mind that the original designs will be secret.
and forget me nots.

I used velvet and found fabrics to make small collages on wool felt
which were then attached together.
I kept going until I ran out of felt.
Then I turned them over, and used the felt 'backs' as if they were pieces of paper
and made completely fresh and new drawings.
Drawings that don't have anything to do with the winter.
Penny Berens and I have produced an exhibition entitled Cloth Of Time.
