Still Stitching



I am still here!
My blog has been neglected due to many hours of stitching on small and very large works.
So much has happened in the last few weeks, my sisters wedding in the most beautiful location of Ravello in Italy!
If I can get myself organised I will share a few of the many photos I took around the mountains and my visits to Pompeii and Herculaneum.
Before my trip I visited Solihull Embroiderers Guild to give a workshop, everyone was very welcoming and enthusiastic, which made it a very enjoyable day.
On Saturday I will be travelling to Northampton Embroiderers Guild to give a talk on my textiles and paintings, looking forward to meeting everyone there.

At the moment I'm busy preparing for the annual Warwickshire Open Studios which opens on the 28th June.
I  will be working from my studio which is situated in the beautiful grounds of Ragley Hall, it is here you will see my passion for threads! I will have my large textiles on display with my paintings, drawings and tree brooches.
We have at least ten other artists exhibiting together, you can find full details here http://ragleygallery.co.uk/exhibitions/warwickshire-open-studios-2014/
 It will make a lovely day out where you can chat with the artists, enjoy the large variety of artwork on show, and perhaps partake in a gentle stroll through the woodland walk after tea and cake.

Your trip sounds amazing! I'll be at Ragley Hall too and have been bashing my poor sewing machine today making little boat pictures.

No wonder you have no time to blog. Your life sounds busy. Thank you for finding time to share images of some of your new small works. Beautiful as always
