Catch up

Oh I have been away a long time...  lots to tell you, I'll probably forget most of it...

The De-Junk, Re-Junk exhibition was very well received with lots of lovely visitors who all seemed to enjoy themselves.  I sold some of my new upcycled bottle vases and some eco daisies too, and lots of my seashore art cards.  I was chuffed!  I have some bottle vases left over but some of them will probably be going out to a couple of lovely local shops, I'll let you know when it's confirmed.  I've made a couple of new ones and listed this one in my etsy shop, more to follow when I have more stock.

Straight after the exhibition finished we dashed away for a few days over in Scarborough.  We had glorious weather, in fact, it was really too hot, something I never thought I'd say about a holiday in Scarborough!

Now I need to get my head down and sort out my natural dyed fabric experiments which are going to be part of the annual TX creative textiles exhibition at Castle Park Arts Centre in Frodsham.
Just a few sneak peeks for you here...

At last I have a moment to sit down and play with the beautiful new blue ribbon that has been waiting for me for a week or so...  it's a gorgeous periwinkle blue which I know is going to make lovely flowers.

I do think the colour is going to be tricky to photograph though, I've had to tweak this picture to get it looking right.  At least it's not as difficult as purple, that defeats my camera every time.

In other news, the De-Junk, Re-Junk exhibition is now open for visitors at Birkenhead park Visitor Centre, see my Events page for details.  I will be 'minding' the exhibition this coming Sunday and Monday afternoons, and Sunday morning next weekend.  I'd love to see you if you can pop along, it's well worth a visit.

And on to the next thing, I am preparing my piece for the annual TX creative textiles exhibition at Castle Park Arts Centre in Frodsham, details to follow soon.

Oh, and in my spare time(!) I have been setting up a new Facebook page for me as an artist and maker, in addition to the page I already have for my ffflowers.  It is somewhere where I will be able to collect photographs of my glass and collagraph prints etc. and post details of events I am taking part in.  I'd love it if you would take a look and maybe 'like' what you see!

Busy busy busy!
