"Seamless" off the body, on the wall: Textile exhibition at Colaiste Stiofain Naofa, Cork

My aunt was influential in teaching me how to sew when I was about 6 years old. I recently inherited her sewing box, filled with her threads and sewing notions for mending, altering and embellishing clothing. Some aunties may seem/seam so straight! But my aunty lived an interesting and full life in Ireland, UK and the USA. She seemed quite exotic to a very impressed 6-year old! These nostalgic treasures inspired a series of 4 8x8inch block pieces. (photos of the 4 pieces to follow shortly!)
