I Love what I do and that's textiles.

There's nothing more satisfying than doing something you love doing and I love what I do. Although sometimes trying, testing and hard work. I wouldn't change the creative gifts I have and what directions it takes me in life. Getting a late night text from a friend who appreciated her hand made wedding gift makes it all worth while and even more heart felt and special.

Fun at the Fair

We had a fab day in Portsmouth, at Clarence Pier and the beach. Brought back a lot of memories. I started my creative career at Portsmouth Art College and used to spend a lot of time at the beach in South-sea, it all came flooding back. Took my daughters and they loved the funfair rides, still as rickety as ever love the colour we had a fab day!

Project 1

Project 1 - This summer holiday the kids are off and I'm trying to fit in those little projects that need to be done round the house, which never get done. Some of the projects are large and may take many years to accomplish, but feel like I'm making baby steps towards what I want to achieve.

This week I have up cycled a bench with metal studs and also made a Moroccan style canopy for my garden swing.

Even got round to putting blackout fabric in the girls curtains things are starting to take shape, will update you on my next project when complete hers some pictures x
