So close!

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

I’m back! The shows are over for this year and I can now think about doing something other than packing wool, like using it maybe? (happy dance) Before the show madness overtook me I managed to get the peacock hanging quite a long way, so far in fact that a further 20 minutes worth of work would have seen it finished.

I’ve backed and bordered the hanging with calico. I’d literally just finished machine stitching it down when a section popped out. It’s hard to explain how deflated I felt, so close and yet so far now to finishing. There’s so much going on that it’ll probably be another two weeks before I complete it and yet the majority of the work only took 2 weeks. Wish me luck

 

 

Out of the ORDinary

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

It’s been a while since I last popped in but it’s manic over at Adelaide Walker as we exhibit at 4 shows in 3 consecutive weekends! I look forward to a week on Saturday and a well deserved weekend off and if I haven’t been busy enough with that, I’ve also signed up to exhibit with a new shop in Skipton.

Out of the ORDinary stocks work from Yorkshire based artists and makers and happily for me, they now have some of my felt work.

The shop is in Craven Court at Skipton and has work from over 35 artists so there’s a brilliant range of goodies on offer and definitely something for everyone.
