Seen in Salisbury

I went to visit Threads - Contemporary Textiles Open show at the Salisbury Arts Centre ... wanted to see my "Daily Round" in context ... and here it is -
 right next to a gorgeous piece by Denise Jones, whose work I love, love, love -
 That's ink on the border, and the rest filled in with dense, luminous silk thread. So simple, but so intense and so effective. It was displayed with the rear part runkled up, so the light hit the silk in satisfying sensual ways.

 A chance encounter with Liz Hewitt
 whose beautifully rust-dyed piece also found a congenial neighbour, Karen Skeates's oak gall shibori -
The converted church space made for some incidental juxtapositions with the colourful windows -
 Closeup of the double piece - screenprint by Lubna Din -
 Work by Rosie James, and Ruth Singer's "Criminal Quilt Patchwork" -
 Screen print and hand embroidery by Tanya Fryer -

Detail of "Chelsea, London"
Jane Ponsford uses twisted handmade paper, coloured with ink and/or graphite dust (the colour is a reflection from the stained glass windows) -
Many more pieces are on view, until 12 November.
