The Circus . . . has come to town

At last it is all finished and ready to post tomorrow. Textiles are so under appreciated as an art form. I love to work in this media but it is a slow process, requiring incredible patients, there is no rush even when there is one and no short cuts.
Now it is time to relax and get ready for a new week and a new project.
This piece has been created for an exhibition called
Tactile in Alloa, where visitors will be encouraged to touch the work. I wanted bunting not only for the colour, but also for that ragged prayer flag feeling. I am therefore hoping that the work will improve by being touched.
