After a busy Winter/Spring 2018/19 this post looks back rather than forward.

January was taken up with my participation in an exhibition by the Bishy Lace Group entitled ‘Microscopic’. The interpretation of the theme by the small group of contemporary lacemakers was diverse and exciting. Please see the article in Be Creative January 2019 (

My main contribution was My Address Book, a series of ‘slides’ with images and lace reflecting my place in the universe! I remember writing my address as a child to include details from my house number to The World, The Universe! The thematic link is that in terms of the universe, I am only a microscopic part, The piece also reflects my knowledge of my world at the age of eight. Looking out the images, many taken from Ladybird books, was a pleasure in itself.
