Page 3 embroideries

I have a guilty secret to make...

...on the bus on the way to work I usually read the metro. I admit it. I read 'real' papers at the weekend - I promise! The reason why I am sharing this is because today on page 3 was a story about a textile artist! A cheesy title of 'The intricate art of Mrs Picassew', led to an article about Jill Draper an artist who machine embroiders landscapes. It was a great surprise to see, even though the article did get a little confused about the term tapestry. I look forward to more features on textile art in the metro (wishful thinking I know!).
