Jake's Birthday Present

We had a lovely day with Jake last weekend this is his birthday present, a playhouse, he just loved it and we all had to have a turn inside, even Pippa the very large flatcoat

and of course Mummy and Daddy!

OK so I'm going to be teaching a taster day workshop at Sew Much To Do in Ely on 16th July, 10am to 1pm. Screens and inks will be supplied (although limited designs - just what I've got) if you would like to come along and have a go with a bit of tuition you can always order your own designs from the ready made screens at www.thermofaxscreens.co.uk

Come along and have some fun you will go away with your own unique fabrics, wrapping paper and greetings cards
Contact Sew Much To Do 01353 664000 to reserve your place.

I'm back!

Very naughty of me not to continue with my blog so here I am again - will try harder!
After my wonderful trip to New Zealand last year everything else seemed rather an anti-climax so after a year of re-assessing my life and assimulating recent changes - we now have 2 rather lovely grandsons and retirement looms on the horizon- I feel I can move forward. I have made a the decision to scale back my teaching commitments and all that goes with it and to concentrate more on my own creative work and spend more time with my family, particularly the little ones before they grow up and not need Nanny.

I have been busy in the studio producing some new pieces for an exhibition in Wales with Anglia Textile Works from 25th July at the Minerva Arts Centre, these are going to be titled The Guardian pieces - working in series!

I've also had fun making dungarees for Harry, well it was fun once I had mastered how to do the poppas!
I'll be back!
