During the months it has taken me to work through all the research, design exercises, samples, etc, etc I found I was most inspired by lizards. The prairie points on the lid of my box are not only inspired by the spines on the lizards' backs, but also by the dragon back roof on Gaudi's Casa Batllo in Barcelona.
In and amongst the coursework I've been stitching a few French knots onto this little rockery.
And finally a picture taken in our town centre of a cherry blossom tree in full bloom. Spring is truly here!
