A Pic from our bed ......slipped disc .....old age doesn't come alone
this will be my view for the next couple of weeks ....the circus tent hanging above our bed ..... After being in agony with sciatica for 2 weeks a visit to the osteopath confirmed a sacral lumbar disc bulge which I understand to be a slipped disc ( in old money) so I am confined to bed rest lying down only no sitting up and some gentle walking ....no painkillers so I can listen to my body screaming out in pain ......Yikes......I have been dosing myself up to the eyeballs last two weeks to enable me to continue going to school etc ....but it's caught up with me ..so no sewing .....i guess i can do some hand stitching lying down ...otherwise i will go slowly I N S A N E........ still there is a silver lining ...isn't there always ....I can catch up on all the blog reading that i have missed out on over the last few weeks when i have been so busy .........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 .....
