Stitch Magazine

If you buy this months Embroiderers Guild magazine Stitch, you will find my wearable art "Still Life" brooches. Here is the link to discover whats inside http://www.embroiderersguild.com/stitch/currentissue.html
I hope you like them, they are wonderful to make using up all those small scraps of lace and fabric you can't bare to throw away, treasured in your own art piece.

I have managed to set up my display of art landscape brooches at The Herbert Art Gallery in Coventry this week.
They have glass units to display local artists work for a three month period, it's a lovely shop,spacious and modern in the centre of the gallery.
I am always inspired after my visit and The Herbert has an interesting collection of old masters including work by Lowery,Robert Polehill Bevan and a painting by Paul Nash "The Stackyard", which I love.
So I have been working intensely in my sketch book, trying to capture the changing season's colours and light. Filling each page with line drawings and pastel sketches.

Anyone planning a trip to The Knitting & Stitching Show?
 A friend and I hope we can take an early train down to London Saturday morning, well that is the plan, if I'm not too exhausted with all the stitching and painting I have been working on this week!

Hello thanks so much for your comments.
I didn't manage to go after all, my friend couldn't make it so after an exhausting week I caught up with my own stitching and saved some money! xx
