Lots of revolutions on this boat winch .......Guess what we did today ??....
I never make New Year resolutions as I don't drink or smoke there's nothing to give up .......so I am going to just grab each day and make the most of it and send out some more love into the world and try and live 'in the moment' more ........so today we went to the coast to start the 'Carpe Diem' We went to my most favourite place (next to Wales of course) Dorset and in particular Chapman's Pool to do some fossil hunting.....here's what we found........xx Yes we went to one of my best places .....Chapman's Pool Fossil hunting .....I'm in heaven ..... This one's got your name on it Kim..... Here's a big one ....I love the thought that these jurassic fossils, ammonites are 150 million years old and this is the first time since then that they have been exposed from inside the shale ...The cliffs are constantly shifting with tides and rain and wind........mind blowing eh !!!...... Jim and I went to Chapman's pool on one of our first dates 7 years ago......AAAWWW feel the love ..... Can you see the orangutan's face in this dead crab ? or am I seeing things ?? AWWW........sending out the love Folks ..........xxx Phew climbing back up the hill ....is that a smile or a grimace from all that lactic acid build up ??? But with a pocket full of goodies ........we found loads of Kinder egg bits of plastic toys in all the flotsam and jetsom ......a REAL treasure ..Look out for them appearing on an ATC in the not to distant future......... We went down into Swanage after for a well deserved plate of pea fritter and chips .... Stone mermaid to complete a perfect day ........what have you done today ???......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 .....
