Environmental issues are much talked about by scientists and the recent flooding is an indication of the destruction it can do.

However, in the parts of the world where there is little water or during prolonged heat waves, drought can be just as devastating to human, animal and plant life. And is likely to be the future pattern of life on our planet.

This pice of work reflects how our river beds and streams look in areas of drought in our country.

Paper, dye and stitch.

This quilt is part of the Connection touring exhibition by Cwilt Cymru currently showing at Forge Mill Needle Museum in Redditch.

“Since becoming a member of Cwilt Cymru I have been inspired to enter more challenges and have been searching for appropriate themes that fit my interest in organic and naturally occurring environmental features. The quilt is based on the ancient rock strata of Ceibwr Bay in Moylegrove, Pembrokeshire and is approximately 26” x 12”. Ceibwr is a place I go to think, retreat from the world for a brief period when necessary and to find solace.”
