Artisans At Croxteth Hall

I'm getting excited about attending Artisans At Croxteth Hall in Liverpool on 19th August. It is on both the Saturday & Sunday 12-6pm, but I will be taking my textile art there on Sunday 19th.

As well as my larger framed pieces I have been busy making these postcard-sized artworks.
The background is needle-felted with patches of fabric, then applique and machine stitches added. I usually add some little blades of grass and swooping seagulls by hand.

If you get chance pop over and say "Hi". It will be a lovely event with lots of beautiful handcrafted goods to admire (and buy), delicious food and a great atmosphere set in the beautiful grounds of Croxteth Hall.

Peace and Tranquility

The Summer holidays are fast approaching and I'm really wishing we had a little holiday planned. I'd love to escape in a little camper van...

...or sleep peacefully within the cool walls of a whitewashed stone cottage.

I'm craving sea breezes, open skies and time to enjoy each moment. My system needs a reboot to help me find some direction again. And some cool, salty air to clear my melted brain!!!
