First of all can I thank everyone who came to the Shipley Art Gallery on Saturday to support the event - it was a superb day and I sold many items from my stall!!! The Gallery was busy all day and I'm hoping to be involved in another similar event in March 2011.

As a result of the extensive sales on Saturday and a huge order from Japan on my return home, my on line shops are somewhat low in stock!! I am also in the middle of preparing several 20cm by 20cm framed pieces for the Ouseburn Open Studio Weekend at Mushroom Works Gallery, Newcastle from 25th to 27th November!!! Phew - I have a busy week ahead!

I have already completed some framed artwork including the designs below,

All of these pieces will be sold for £20 at the exhibition - 20cm by 20cm for £20 - a fabulous idea and ideal for family and friends who are difficult to buy for at Christmas time!

The Scandinavian Bird pictures were popular at Ouseburn last year so I have made quite a few for this year's show too.

The owls weren't on show last year but have proved popular in my etsy shop so I'll be making a couple of these - this one will be included in the exhibition.

I am also embroidering Dala Horses, Fields of Poppies, Peacocks, Suns (with faces)!!! which I hope to show you later in the week.

There will be several local artists taking part in the show including Jim Edwards and Joanne Wishart. You will also have the opportunity to explore artists' studios located in the Ouseburn Valley, Newcastle. More information can be found on the Mushroom Works website or you are welcome to contact me by e-mail ( you require any further information

Lovely, I love all the pieces with the landscape being my favourite.

If only I'd known about the exhibition, I was up in Beamish at the weekend and could have dropped in!

What beautiful work, I love the tree pictures and the brooches are gorgeous. I wish I had as good an eye for which colours go well together!
