I’ve just come across this amazing artist, who currently has an exhibition in Sydney (sadly, it is very unlikely I will be going to Sydney any time soon!). Adrienne Doig has made a whole series of pictures from unfinished quilts from the inter-war years, and has appliquéd images onto them. I can imagine people in the future using my unfinished projects. The “Feminist Cliché” is my favourite.

She has also created a series of these wonderful tapestry images of Aussie fauna – very cute. They remind me of the Renaissance tapestries in the V&A.
