Paper making class

This is my first attempt at paper making. It has been sitting around my studio for a few months waiting for me to find a frame and at last I've found one at a garden centre of all places!

Matlock Rules!

Look what I managed to find on Sunday at one of my favourite haunts Matlock Antique Centre. I just love these vintage dolly knits and now need to make some creatures to wear them! One even has a monogrammed label stitched in it. Gorgeous!!

The Motley Crew!

Here we have Phoebe the cat, Ringo the cavalier, one of the bumble bee twins (chicken), Abigail and Amelia, the runner ducks and finally Danny, Alfie Moon and Ruby.

More photos

Here are a few more photos of my work from a recent exibition in the Waterstones Gallery, Nottingham.

Finished them

These are the finished bracelets ready to be taken over to Lincolnshire.

First attempt

Well it the 26th January and this is the first chance I've had to use my great new laptop to create a blog page.
I have many excuses like our beautiful new puppy George who is lying on my Ugg boots as we speak. He is a cavapoo although he is looking more poodley at the moment and extremely scruffy. We all love him though and so does everyone who meets him.
I am busy on the sewing front at the moment making bracelets with vintage fabric and buttons for a wonderful shop in Lincolnshire called Decorative Country Living.
My next project, which I can't wait to start, is a quilt made out of outgrown baby clothes for my friend.
It's late now and Georgie needs feeding.
