A lazy-bed is a small field for crops traditionally laid out on the hills of the Scottish islands. To me it is a metaphor for being creative, taking care and looking to the future.

As wool is my main source of textile to work with, sheep are a source of inspiration. On my travels through Scotland and Ireland I'm always happy to come across a flock or just one. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish them between the rocks. Most of the time they are shy, but occasionally their curiosity wins. Their fleece is sheered but also just gets loose, so there's lots of bits and pieces to be found for my work. I'm always returning home with pockets full of fluffy wool.
Look at the way they live here, they have so much space, such healthy grass to eat and no stress. That's until they eventually are transported.
These happy ones live on Canna.
