I have been away exhibiting my embroideries at fairs- the Great Northern Craft Fair in Manchester, Festival of Crafts at Farnham Maltings and MADE London, all of the events were great, each one unique and dynamic in its very own individual way, my work was very well received. A big thank you to all of you that came by and said hello, its always lovely to see a friendly face.
I now have a short lull before the next three events, Lustre in Nottingham, Hereford Craft Fair and MADE Brighton. I have been ensconced in making tiny framed pieces and I am loving working in miniature and here is a selection of tiny faces!!

I've been away from the studio for the last week and have been very lucky in spending my time with like minded stitching enthusiasts, two groups of the most lovely ladies and I have been stitching to our hearts content and making even lovelier pictorial machine embroidery pieces, and oh, what talent they all have!
I want to thank each and every one of them for a truly fabulous time and for making me so welcome.
Keep up the good work and happy stitching!

A selection of some of the things I have been doing and loving doing in the last couple of weeks, holidaying away and here and working with lovely textile and stitch enthusiasts at the wonderful Cowslip Workshops in Launceston, oh, and what a great time we all had, a big thank you to all at cowslip and to all the very clever and talented stitchers that came on the 3D workshop and the Pictorial Machine Embroidery Workshop. Well done everyone and carry on all the good work.
Isn't this sun fabulous, someone said to me "aren't we lucky" we're more than lucky, we jolly well deserve it after the dreadful wash out summers we've had in the last few year, another cracker of a weekend of sunshine ahead. Enjoy it everyone.

Lovely talented and inspiring members of the Winchester Embroiderers Guild showing their 3D machine embroidery pieces off. We stitched onto a soluble fabric, dipped the fabric in warm water and watched the fabric disappear leaving behind our 3D machine embroidery! Fabulous!! Thankyou everyone for a lovely day, keep up the good work and happy stitching.
