'Twelve Seasons', produced in 1996 by Pragnell for Borders Museum Service, was a beautiful work that used photography, natural material, written words and her own made items to construct a three-dimensional diary of the changing seasons in the Borders. So successful was this body of work with the public that it went on extended tour throughout the UK, lasting almost two years. This piece also showed Pragnell's broader credentials as a skilled photographer and calligrapher. The work celebrated many of the local Lothian Estate workers she came to know. This work, along with 'Visual Diary', is now part of the Scottish national curriculum. She was artist-in-residence at the 1998 Glasgow Garden Festival.
