Letter R

Hi everyone!
I hope you have all had a good week and are enjoying some good weather. I have had a great weekend following the Henley Arts Trail, looking at the work of artists from a wide
variety of disciplines and meeting them. I feel very inspired and my head is full of ideas!
Back down to earth, and to this week's tag!
R is for River

I had to choose River, as we live only a few minutes walk from the River Thames, and it is a constant presence in my life. I can even see Caversham Bridge and Reading Bridge from my loft window, but not the river itself, except occasionally when the light shines in the right place! 
My tag is my artistic interpretation of the river, the shape of it with its meanders, and I have used floral fabrics  as the banks on either side. The river is made of blue checked fabric, with thick threads couched on .
Looking forward to seeing your R tags!
