October journal - 2 months late….A river runs through it

The River Thames has been an important part of my life since I moved to the western suburbs. Walking the paths, cycling by it, supervising wobbly scooter rides,visiting events, and even once, being part of a the team on a dragon boat that paddled 26 miles down it. This is the shape of the river between Twickenham and Teddington with colours that portray different seasons of the year.  The postcode is given a bit of lip service here in the bottom corner.  This is much more regularly shaped than it seems here, just struggling to gets a photo in daylight at present.

Block printing, felt applique, watercolour crayon, machine quilting on recycled cotton sheeting.


  1. Always lovely to see the Thames in any guise! Was this a whole cloth that you coloured in? Looks marvellous. I'm guessing Eel Pie Island, but happy to be informed if I'm mistaken.

  2. How lovely that your part of the river is accessible, we have houses lining most of it, we'd have to drive somewhere to be able to walk along it!!! Love the way you've represented it


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
