The childrens' summer holidays flew over and the Olympics kept everyone entertained day and night!
In the meantime, I have been busy designing new wares for my etsy shop and stocking galleries and shops; old and new!
Owl pins are now listed in my etsy shop...
I have also been working on some reversible fabric collars with a ribbon fastening. Easy to wear and one size fits all. The one below was my first attempt and I am in the process of making several more in various fabrics. They are ideal for 'dressing up' a plain t shirt or jumper and seem to be the ultimate fall/winter fashion accessory!
The picture below is a drawing of mine that I have had printed on to white cotton via the Spoonflower website. I have added the felt flowers and hand embroidered them on to the fabric. These framed pieces of art will form part of the 20 x 20 (for £20) exhibition at Mushroom works gallery in Newcastle at the end of November. I will also be exhibiting several more designs alongside several other local north east artists. This exhibition is ideal if you are looking for a unique Christmas gift but it's advisable to be there early on preview night as the framed pieces tend to disappear very quickly!
I am exhibiting at the Daisy Green handpicked market at the Shipley Art Gallery in Gateshead next Saturday from 10am - 4pm. I will have a wide selection of my work for sale and it would be lovely if you could pop along xx
