It’s been a while!

Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun! And the older you get the faster it seems to fly though…..! And while I haven’t actually been flying I have been sailing across the oceans. I spent the cold month of January teaching on part of the World Cruise for P&O.  I saw some amazing places and met some lovely people. So much so I’m off again next year on the Queen Elizabeth from San Francisco to Brisbane…all in the name of work!!!

While I have been absent from my blog I haven’t been quiet on the felt front. I have been teaching my regular felt classes in Woodgreen and popping up and down the country doing the odd workshop here and there, including the International Feltmakers AGM in Suffolk where I was teaching felt cuffs and fingerless gloves.

PS Are you all ready for next week Helen ??

One up and one down!

It must be the season for exhibitions. The exhibition Black and White in Finland has just finished (Photo credits – Olli Levaniemi). Shame I couldn’t get over to see my work hung in the flesh, so to speak, but lovely to be part of an International exhibition.

And today I have just been helping to set up the exhibition ‘Stitched’ in Romsey Abbey. It was a beautiful morning and the light was shining onto the exquisite pieces of work being hung. This is an exhibition organised by Susan Chapmen together with Rum’s Eg Gallery. It is open from 30th September until 1st November. PV tomorrow night if you want to meet all the artists. A sneak preview here but you really need to see all the work up close (or up high in the case of those arches from the huge archways!).
