Early this summer I started gathering inspiration for a new project. My first stop was the Victoria and Albert Museum. It's probably my favourite place to go and find things. It's full to the brim of beautiful pieces of creative history. It gives me butterflies.Was I expecting to find a pot of Medieval stuff brimming to overflowing with statues and staircases and tapestries, no. But I did find it. I thought, maybe a few paintings, a tapestry... not literally everywhere I looked. What a pleasant surprise. Here are photographs of some of my findings, because I thought they might inspire you too. And so you can get a sneak peek of what I'm working on.Okay- this ceiling isn't medieval- but it is William Morris and he very much subscribed to the medieval sensibilities.So intricate and long-lasting.These stitched masterpieces are my favourite. So much time and love and hard work. Sigh.
