Well this week I've been working on new pieces to send up to a lovely gallery/craft/workspace in Leeds called The Bowery.
A selection of items all in spring like creams/pinks/peaches and pale tones. All v feminine, I hope that they are well received.
They are a various mix of print/embroidered and fabric collage/embroidered pieces, with some recognisable images and a lot of abstract touches, constructed in to textile accessories. I have more pieces to make and will be taking photos and posting about them when they're complete.

Four finished peachy/pink/cream clutch purses

I have also been setting up my new shop on Folksy. So all UK bods will now be able to buy from here too! I've added a few brooches for the moment but plan on filling this and my etsy shop with more stock over the next few weeks.

Both of the sweet bloom brooches below are now available in my folksy shop.

I am all packed and ready to go and visit my sis this weekend in Brighton, setting off shortly!
It is 'artists open houses' all this month in Brighton and IT IS FAB!!!! We've been several times over the past few years and had great fun following the various trails, visiting the open houses (some v v v gorgeous abodes out there!) and seeing all the wonderful art and craft work being created. Whatever the weather we will be out there!
So I am off with my camera in hand to hopefully get some good pics so I can come back and blog about my weekend next week.
Hope you all have a fab weekend whatever you're doing, Enjoy! ;0 x

Oh my goodness, how gorgeous is your work! I feel terrible that I had not seen your blog before meeting you!
It was really lovely to meet you and your sister, I will be looking forward to seeing your name in the brochure next year!
