August journal, N16, I move to London


Commercial fabric, dyed with coffee, machine quilted with various threads.

I moved to Stoke Newington, which was not "up and coming" at that time.  Although the tube network is extensive, the only way I could get to work, at University College, in any reasonable time was by the 73 bus, hence the additional little red line between Holloway Road and Euston.  The red binding is to remind me of the bus and of my lab' work at that time, with hundreds of round petri dishes, growing blobs of muscle cells.


  1. Ah yes, Stoke Newington in the days before it was des res Stoke Newington, how well I remember it. We would pop over from Hackney to go drinking.

  2. The 73 bus - reaches the bits the tube doesn't!

  3. Another fab quilt, thanks for sharing!

  4. Great use of this fabric. I love the the Heathrow loop (my nearest tube station( comes up right next to the Cutty Sark/ Greenwich end of the DLR, Lisa's nearest tube station! I didn't get up there yesterday, she came home instead!


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