On Sunday a chance to visit the Festival of Quilts.
I admired the quilts from contemporary to traditional,
the separate exhibitions from well known makers,
and groups, from all over the world. I wandered
through the traders' area. Found there was a lot
of things I didn't need.
One exhibit I adored was the wedding blankets
of the Marsh Arabs of South Iraq. Camel wool
base, embroidered with wool - chain stitch
using a tambour or ari hook. They were joyful.
