Passed this Oak tree on our walk this morning ...(I took this using panoramic on my phone but I think I've repeated a bit of the tree and it's bigger than it should be ....never mind you get the picture anyhow ).I could get used to this holiday business......Jim took me for breakfast at a new Cafe thats opened in our local shopping precinct. Its called Asante which is Swahili for Thank you. Its run as a charity all proceeds go to building schools and paying for teachers in locations in Kenya. While we were there the Cake Lady arrived with the day's confections .....Yum Yum .....I di have a piece of the most heavenly carrot cake ..........we walked there and back so it's ok ........x This last photo was part of an art series which we found in an underpass........interesting collages.......x
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 .....
