Stripes and rows, and what they reveal

So, it's fairly obvious from my work that I like things in rows. I mean, look at this: rows and rows of woolly sheep. You can see this on the website here
And then I like stripes too, as seen in my exhibition display using ticking fabric:
So I was a happy bunny walking along Happisburgh beach at the weekend - stripes and rows everywhere:
If I were still designing on the loom in weaving, what inspiration I'd be finding here. Weaving (one of my many past lives) - lots of rows and stripes Archaeology (another of my past lives) - lots of rows and stripes in the form of sediments and deposits laid down over time So stripes and rows is an element that brings together lots of my interests - I've never really thought about that before.... What theme do you find running through your life?
