The Ruff Lady

Jill Flower came to our Branch tonight to give a talk on her work.  I hadn't realised that she also made beautiful bags too!  Such scrumptious colours and stitching!!

Jill was very generous in answering our questions and letting us handle her bags and look through her sketchbooks.  
The perspex frames set off the work beautifully.
 And these are the ruffs for which she is now known.  Made of paper, and the story behind the work is based on the seven ages of man.
Jill is doing a workshop for us in two weeks time.  Nickie and I were going to the AGM in Dundee but had to change our plans-too late to get on the workshop, its fully booked and with a waiting list:0(
Libby who runs our YE, gave me a sneek peek at what the girls wil lbe making on Saturday, they are just going to love it!!
