Still looking for my Susan ..i.e. for the elusive thing that I can sell for small amounts of cash to keep me afloat and being an artist.(when is that supposed to happen?) just happily being creative at the moment….cant quite believe it’s a week since Brockenhurst …..A lovely two days showing my work and demonstrating paper manipulation techniques and book making. It’s amazing what a conversation starter putting a can of Felippo Berio on my table was ! Thank you to everyone who said nice things about my work …lots of interest in talks and work shops so that’s great! Also sold one of my little sculptures. So pleased! Hope it gives you as much pleasure as I had making it!
Also Ralph AKA The GOM. has gone to a good home!
Good luck to Worthing Young Embroiderers’ …Happy book making and email me your results will be great to see what you come up with! Been making more books this week …..
also been working on developing hand stitch workshops as well as work for the rural refugee network art sale on June 15th as well not to mention Open Studios in August…..
Didnt get much time to look around BRock .. Obligatory stop at art van go …goes without saying …..but it was fab! Lots of lovely stand there. The ladies who organise it are amazing!!! Thank you for having me. Great to talk textiles non stop for two whole days. Head buzzing with ideas!! It really is a lovely show.
Also extremely pleased with my Alison Hulme pinnie!! I’ve been trying to buy one now for the last two years but can never make my mind up,about a colour…. Got A to choose for me…very pleased!! Thank you! Can I just say the pockets are beautiful!!
still practising my Instagram technique.. Not good !!! I think your supposed to do more of a blue steel and plaster yourself with make up first ah well never mind!! Pinnie looks good….
also been making these…trying to revisit stuff and ideas I already have and develop them further….
Really interesting art talk at local art society this week.. Always good to hear about other peoples influences…..reminded me how much I love Edward Bawden and Eric Ravillious!
Just putting finishing touches to my presentation for the Embroiderers Guild AGM next Saturday….and looking forward to the chi art dept degree show next week
P.S Thank you for looking after me Sarah at Brockenhurst. Everything was perfect!! Hope your bee making workshop went well on the Sunday!!
P.P.S just back from teenage shopping trip on Oxford street… All I can say is thank goodness for the mad Canadian and a posh cake and coffee shop which provided necessary sustinance to keep me going and re-establish my sanity.. Urban outfitters is not a good place for me!!! Fenwicks however was ……Lancôme lady said she thought I looked like an artist… Which one said I….????
