St. Ives ........ What an experience.

  St. Ives full of texture, shapes, lines and colour.
I don't even know where to start with my photographs so I have made a series of mosaics to show you what I saw.
From the landscape of the Eden Project, to life on St. Ives harbour and dramatic pieces of art hung in the many galleries.
Spotted some Doodly Birds in the Tropical pod in the Eden Project.
A window in the Tate, Day of the Dead sculpture dedicated to Mexican Artist Frida Kahlo in Falmouth, the work of Sue Dove textile artist based in St. Ives and hand stitched church kneelers in a church in Marazion.
And the reason we went there in the first place.....
To celebrate the fact that my Mum will be 80 this year.
Hubby Philip, Mum in the middle and my lovely sister Jill.

More to follow including my day with Textile artist Carolyn Saxby and other artists I met and galleries we visited. Stay tuned...
Nice to be home.
