It's almost that time of year again!

West Berkshire Open Studios is looming and I've been very busy doing lots of work, none of which is for this year's exhibition! There will be at least five of us exhibiting at the Old Chapel Textile Centre throughout May this year, making it an exciting hub of creativity for all things fabric and thread related.
We have now christened our group "Gathering Threads" and the exhibition this year is called "Extravaganza." It will encompass a wider range of textile arts and crafts and feature demonstrations and workshops. Click here for more information on the exhibition or here for my very own page in the directory.

Difficult times

The last couple of weeks have been challenging. I have struggled to find time to draw in my book, and when I have had time, the inspiration just hasn't been flowing! On top of that, I was unable to accomplish one of my other new year's resolutions when I injured my ankle and couldn't run in the Reading Half Marathon on Sunday 20th March. Disappointed as I was, it has only made me more determined to run in one later in the year, and really, things could be a lot worse. So here's a bumper delivery of my mid-March-musings.

First days of March

Finally it feels like Spring is here! The spiders and ladybirds are slowly emerging from their crevices and the clouds have briefly parted for a spell of lovely springy weather. Forgive me for being a little behind with my drawings, I can assure you I am keeping up, just not the blogging part! So here's the first week of March for you all. Thank you.

Meeting the People

I can't believe it's been two weeks since our Meet the Artists event at The Coterie exhibition! Here are some pictures that the lovely Sarah-Leigh took on the night. Visit The Coterie's blog and Sarah's own blog for more!

I'm still going!

Albeit a little slowly. My daily drawing routine is more of a peaks and troughs thing, some days I'll do none, some days I'll do three, but all averaging one per day. Here are some more February delights...
