Out with the old, in with the new!

A little overdue, but here are the beginnings of the next sketchbook, and in this case, the sequel most definitely will be better than the original!

The end of an era...I mean sketchbook!

Here are the last few pages of my first full sketchbook of the year so far! I have started a new one now, which I might treat you to a few pages of over the weekend, I'll keep you posted!

This diverse exhibition opened on Tuesday and we had our official preview this weekend. Here are some pics of the work in situ. There really is some beautiful work, if you feel like coming to see it (you really should!) the show runs until Sunday 29th May and it's open Tuesday-Sunday 10am-4pm at The Old Chapel Textile Centre, Main Street, New Greenham Park, Newbury, RG19 6HW. I'll be there mainly just at weekends if you'd like to come and chat to me about my work.

New pieces: Spring, Autumn, Summer and Winter
Some of my new card designs along with some old favourites
The ever popular button badges
The postcard pantomime has expanded since it's first outing in February at Hanger Farm Arts Centre
Silk painting by Sarah Moorcroft
Serena Nickson's mobile knitwear boutique
Valentina Tikhonova's haute couture embroidery
Silk fibre art by Val Tierney

One of the loveliest things I saw yesterday was some visitors who have come to see me every year at Open Studios. They had brought with them some of their own koodles creatures to show me, aren't they fab?! I love the one on the left, his mouth is awesome!

Almost finished this book!

There is little more satisfying (for me anyway) than a bulging sketchbook, filled from cover to cover with memories. I look forward to leafing through it sometime next year and remembering all the things I got up to this year! Plus, I have another book to start when this one's full! Here is the beginning of the end:
