Cat and Mouse? .....

Sorry for the terrible cat/mouse pun but I would like to introduce Tamika, my new studio assistant...she isn't very helpful so far, but has taken over and found herself a cosy bed in my fabric storage-that's when she isn't busy climbing my legs and trying to grab my fingers as I type....a lot more training needed I think! :)

Funky Fairy Pin

I am quite delighted to be offering for sale these totally funky fiber art one-of-a-kind pins.
Hand painted using specialised lithographic pigments, which are then heat-fixed at high temperature, so no chance of fading or smudging onto heavyweight cotton canvas, this design was then given extra texture with a touch of free embroidery, backed with a fresh piece of canvas and a pin attached ( with safety clasp.) Each piece is strictly a one off - please feel free to contact me as I welcome custom orders at no obligation-your best friend's favourite flower or colours could be designed on a special gift pin for example...the possibilities are endless!
Measure approx 5cm x 6cm.
This is a lovely gift for someone special or maybe a well-deserved treat for yourself! Available for sale now PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR FULL DETAILS!

Carnival Time!

Indulge me today in a 'proud mum' moment if you please...I took time out last week for a very special costuming project- my youngest daughter ( autumn fairy) and her friend (winter fairy) took part in the Truro Carnival.
I had to share these photos, they both looked so lovely and walked proudly in the parade, it was wonderful to see....oh, and they got FIRST PRIZE of course!
I guess I can take a little credit for that? :)
After the prize giving they were asked to pose for several local newspapers...initially awkward they soon got over the embarrassment and were soon lapping up the attention in true paparazzi style!!
