Uber blogging

Ok, so it's been a while since I wrote anything, that's just because I've been busy doing things to write about! Firstly, I am now a fully fledged member of, you can see my shop here with my little creatures in now. They're like a little family!

I also took part in an online project by Sandra Dieckmann called a Haus Stories where each artist creates a floor of a really tall house! Here is my floor doing its thing between the one-eyed girl and the duck-billed platypus (we don't see enough of those in art these days).
I visited the Whiteknights Studio Trail a couple of weekends back, which was truly fabulous. It was so lovely to meet lots of artists, designers and friends of friends and I loved doing it on my own so I could take as much time as I needed! I bought some gorgeous prints from Jo Quinn to add to my mini art collection that is growing and growing! So this isn't one that I bought, but one that I would have bought if I had more money!

Spontaneous little pics

During the final weekend of Gathering Threads I was creating mini artworks as prizes for a competition I ran. I scanned them all quickly before sending them out as I thought people might like to see them, plus I was quite pleased with some of them! I'd love to know what people think, should I make any of them into cards/prints? So anyway, here they are...

All good things must come to an end

I'm both sad and relieved that our Gathering Threads exhibition is now over. At least now I have my weekends back! We all had a wonderful time and found it to be a great success, both for us and for the National Needlework Archive who welcomed a number of guests who "didn't even know it was here!"

Here are a few photos from our final weekend of demonstrations, which was a huge success and we were busy all day. We even had to be gently nudged out of the door at closing time! Enjoy!

We hope to get together and do another exhibition at some point, but in the meantime you can find Val Tierney here and Serena Nickson here. Oh and me here of course, and all of my work will shortly be available in my Etsy shop here.
