Visited The Craft Study Centre in Farnham on Thursday to see an exhibition of the work of Diana Harrison see http://www.csc.uca.ac.uk/new-events/2016/8/9/exhibition-diana-harrison-working-in-cloth.
As the CSC website says
'Working in cloth is a major exhibition of textile art by one of the finest practitioners in Britain, (Diana Harrison's) recent work is often quiet, introspective and deeply considered ...'
The show is small, very well curated with delicate, repetitive and inspiring textile work in a beautiful setting and really helpful exhibit notes ... do go if you're nearby.
Farnham calls itself a craft town ... there's certainly lots going on there and plenty of traffic. One of those towns that is not very far at all from me and yet I'd forgotten all about it. It seemed a great place to return to now to get to know the polaroid zip printer I bought this week - and to find more images for stitch inspiration.
The printer is very small and so (unsurprisingly) are the prints ... but it was easy to set up. I downloaded the app, connected it via bluetooth to my phone and printed an image just the size for sketchbook work.

Finally, yesterday I somehow found my way to a Youtube video of BKS Iyengar Teaching Yoga asana class in London 1985. its labelled part 2 of 2 (Clip 3 of 3) ... there are lots of great tips about what to move where and the length of the stretch in shoulder stand ... and it's wonderful to watch the Master teaching.
