Managed a trip to the Asian Art Museum during my visit to San Francisco this year. What a great museum, just the right size to have a wander through all the galleries without getting 'museumitus' (you know, when your legs ache and you can't possibly take in one more beautiful object)!
Some highlights for me were:
Wicker Buddha; Ivory Tusk carving; Jade Buddha
And there was some great embroidery too!
Korean wrapping cloth; Silk kimono; womens clothing from SE Asia
If you can't visit personally, check out the collection on their website: Asian Art Museum

I have just arrived back from nearly 3 weeks in America, to find the first copy of my book on the doorstep!
Signed copies will be available to buy in June from my shop and look at for silk shading kits also. More about San Francisco later....

Unless you've been living in space for the last month, you can't have failed to notice there was a Royal Wedding! What you may not know, is that the Royal School of Needlework contributed their skills to help create the dress, veil and shoes and I was privileged to be a part of the team. Well done to everyone at the RSN, it was alot of fun! To read more about this visit: Royal School of Needlework.
Very beautiful she looks too...
