Jeanette and i went to the preview of 'Fabric of Myth' at Compton Verney last night. Everybody should see this exhibition. it is a stunning collection of work by artists from all over the world, not necessarily all known for their textile work and there is a story being told here through illustrations carefully selected from Homer's the Odyssey and much more. go its great!!!!

Went for a walk in my favourite nature reserve The Knapp and Papermill at Alfrick Pound, Worcestershire. Though there were quite a few cars outside when i arrived i enjoyed a solitary walk. I've been absorbed by a project called what lies beneath all about things under ground, so i've been in a dark and moody place for quite a few weeks but to come into this wholly captivating greeness was quite a moving experience. I encountered pools with newts, meadows full of buttercups and clover, baby blackbirds, a canopy of green leaves accompanied by the music of a tinkling stream, quite enchanting.

What Lies Beneath is a study of buried treasure, i've been interested in things buried beneath our feet that will never be discovered. It's part of an exhibition 'Time present and time past' that starts at the Corinium Museum in Cirencester on 3rd June until 31st July.

This is a video by The Flight of the Conchords, i like the idea of business socks!!
