The embroidery trail

Still no progress on funding... but I visit central Spain with a great friend, Marcy Frosh. We stay in Oropesa de Toledo and we walk a couple of kilometres in the burning heat to a neighbouring village, Lagartera.
Famous for its embroidery.

The designs are geometric, a legacy of Moorish rulers many centuries previously.
We both sense that the project - showing through embroidery how cultures intertwine - has so much potential.
