Beards, Bears & Beds

Hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather that June has brought us. My strawberries are ripening nicely so we get a good bowlful each day.
We had a busy weekend with a visit to Holmfirth Art Market on Sunday. There were so many talented artisans there and it is on again next weekend- I can highly recommend it!
On Saturday I spent the day with my son at a music festival....woohoo! He had a stall as part of the Teenage Market at the Headlander Festival. All his artwork is hand drawn.

He had lots of interest and several sales and it was a fun day.

This week I am working on a commission for a very generous gentleman who has already purchased two pieces of my work as he and his wife really connected with them.

The previous works featured armchairs, this one has an old-fashioned bedstead. I have still to add text and machine quilting. It is going to be a busy week. We have two Uni Open days to visit- thankfully fairly local and should be interesting as my son is looking at illustration/art courses. I think I'll be wanting to sign up for something myself!
Hope your week is good and creative.xx


  1. I cant get over how flat you make your back ground so that the focus really is on the bed. I'm freezing my butt off here in Sydney..

    1. Hi Denise- good to hear from you. we've been having some lovely warm weather here- it won't last!!!

  2. I really like your work, just found you through Denise Litchfield's blog... Hooray for your son - his art looks great!

  3. I love your bed picture - so beautiful!

  4. Well done to your very talented son on his sales (and I agree with Jooles...he clearly does take after his mum!)
    Hope you have a great week,
