The heat is on.

Just about ready to embellish and quilt up  “The Leyton Reminiscence Quilt” by RAGWORKS.  As you were, son.

RAGWORKS uses completely recycled textiles.

Leyton Quilt

Here you will see chapel windows which serve as air-vents for a Turkish barber’s salon. Chimney pots and paraffin kiosks (remember them?) sit comfortably with public baths, church steeples and mosque domes. There’s Hollow Pond before the July burnings. And there’s more….. coming to an exhibition near you.

Even though it’s too hot to sew, the heat is on!

Look out for Lloyd Park Sharing Heritage RAGWORKS wall-hangings. Busy bees.
