I feel a bit sorry for people who have birthdays in early January. My dear brother Greg has a birthday on January 6th and most years he is woefully short-changed by our family when it comes to celebrating his big day. Post-Christmas gift fatigue is a pitiful excuse, so this year I made an effort and sewed him a 13 piece textile installation inspired by Jill McDonald's School Journal covers from the mid-60s. It will hang on the bedroom wall of the newly refurbished home in Martinborough he shares with his gorgeous partner Celia.
Here's an image of a smaller version hanging on my bedroom wall.
Happy New Year everybody. I hope 2015 is shaping up well for you!
