Pathways at Ilminster

yesterday i delivered my work to ilminster arts centre for inclusion in the South West Textile Groups exhibition 'Pathways' that opens tomorrow until 25th October.
the piece i have included although small took a long time and with much angst but here it is! 
the story shows how we learn from an early age to write and sew, stitching samplers and on to dress making and reading

samplers and lazy daisy stitch shapes
join the dots when learning to write
giant cross stitch on gingham
i have used wool, linen, ramie, paper and oxidised metal to make this 70" long sampler incorporating letterpress print. each numbered section is an old fashioned 1"
