The star and the flying trousers
The Rothesay panel begins. The gold and pink star represents Mount Stuart House, our very own Gothic revival rebuilt by the 3rd Marquess of Bute after it was destroyed by fire.
The bird in progress is made from a bizarre pair of evening trousers I coveted many years ago. I convinced myself they were too expensive and impractical. Someone obviously agreed with me because I stumbled across them in a charity shop some months later. I probably only wore them twice before they hit the rag bag where they have languished for the past some years. Nice to see them involved in a new flight of fancy.
