Before and After...can you tell the difference ....
Just cleared a space in my workroom.....no mean feat I can tell you.... have broken up for the Easter hols ...YAY.....two weeks of serious stitching ....what could be better but I couldn't even see one table top when I have actually four tables in my workroom .....methinks I am at saturation point .......but can't BEAR to throw anything out.......I can't even throw bits off the floor in the bin coz I say ...oooh that could go in a layer......There really isn't any hope for me is there ....Is anyone else out there like me ??? please give me hope ... Thought I'd include some pics of a piece of crazy patchwork I did a while ago.. (Once I tapped in Crazy patchwork into Google images and a picture of me came up ...don't know how that happened ......how bizarre is that ?) thought I'd include it as it feels spring like somehow.......it's great to hear the birds singing again ......although it's a bit cold at the mo .....Happy Easter....xx
I am a qualified Textile Teacher but now I am lucky enough to follow my dream being a full time Textile Artist and I love every minute I spend creating in my studio at The West Wing. I am passionate about textiles and am privileged to share my skills with others.
I run workshops for schools, colleges and groups.
I work 1 to 1 with individuals who might want help with basic sewing or more advanced techniques.
Commissions are always welcome please get in touch with me to discuss your requirements. No textile job is too small .....:)
I sell my work through Etsy and you can find me on Facebook at Artymess Textile Art ...come and say hello.
Thanks for taking the time to have a glimpse at my world.
Come and visit my other blog ArtyMaker..I have been lucky enough, along with 8 other Textile artists to take part in The Enliven Project....a project organised by Eastleigh Borough Council....which means that we are working as artists in residence in local Charity shops ...we will create an outfit out of goodies we find in our allocated shop which will be put on display for a month. The outfit will then be featured in the Eastleigh music Festival weekend in July
Here is the facebook page ..with lots of pics .....
