Hokusai at the British Museum

I nipped off to London on Monday for the Hokusai exhibition at the British Museum.
"From the age of 6 I had a penchant for copying the form of things, and from about 50 my pictures were frequently published; but until the age of seventy, nothing I drew was worthy of notice."
There is hope for us all!

I had a solo lunch at the Wolseley and who should sit down next to me but the very lovely
 Eileen Cooper, Keeper of the Royal Academy Schools.   I had just watched the joyous BBC 4 programme Royal Academy Summer Exhibition  and so thought I may burst when I spoke Eileen.

Back to work, I've been busy with oversized linen totes,

 and some rather nice vintage French cotton drill.
