Yes she's arrived after an exhausting journey she's finally here ......Augustus was delighted to see his older sister again ....She is quite a strapping lass is Candace .....much more butch than I had anticipated but I guess she has to be to be able to travel all over the world .....I don't think she's a shrinking violet by any means ........we are looking forward to having some adventures together while she stays here ........x Oh Dear she wants to check out what I've been doing for my exhibition ...(oops not much I'm afraid I'm leaving it till last minute as usual ) .....she wasn't very impressed i'm going to have to get my act in order and our Candace is the gal to crack the whip !!! The china lion wearing the fascinator was the first one to meet Candace ...well he Is King of the workshop (mmmm or is that Queen ???)
The Teenies got really giggly they have waited for so long to meet her and then they got all coy and silly....One of them fell off the shelf in a daft moment....
The girls were far more grown up about it and invited Candace to high tea tomorrow ......cream scones and cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off I'm guessing...... SSSSHHHHHH......she's fallen asleep in a basket of organza ....sleep tight Candace ....have colourful fabric dreams .....xx
Brighton seems to be our second home at the moment ..today we went to see Anne's (from Cardinal Arts)exhibition.....it was wonderful to see her lovely work in 'real' life ....here's a little snippet from the day..........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 .....
