It was lovely to see the work, meet the artists and visit the houses on this trail. A great way to spend a sunny Sunday morning.
All the photos in this posting are of work from other artists. I took far more than I can show here, my apologies to anyone visiting this blog and hoping to see their work but not finding it here. Thank you to all who let me take photos.
Chickens by Denise Lonsdale - more like these will be available from Bristol Guild between 9th and 30th December 2006. (As will work by Sally Cox - see later)
One of Marilyn Burton's window hangings woven from slubbed linen. She weaves everything from delicate scarves to robust rugs.

Jane Ormes does whimsical mixed media work. I'm showing this particular butterfly as it looks so like one of the ones I made last week but did not blog.
These are pieces that I spotted in Sculptor Sally Cox's garden. She lives a few doors down from us and I'm so glad to have finally made her and her family's acquaintance.
