The first in the woods with the Fly Agaric ....... In the woods behind our house .....it's a great time for funghi ...I'll get Jocelyn to identify these as she is an expert although I think the purple one is an Amethyst Deceiver ........magical time in Bluebell Woods ...My fairy name is Bluebell, Jim's is Woodpecker and Ruby is Evergreen ..... this afternoon we went to Lepe Country Park (click on link to read about it some interesting history) for a walk along the sea it was so clear it looked like you could paddle across to the Isle of Wight ...I guess you could in a kayak !!..... yes this clay was REALLY turquoise .....I wondered if I made a pot and fired it whether it would stay that colour .........
A few of these Conifers had already come down where the cliff had eroded ........these have their extraordinary roots exposed .....looked like Jim's old dreadlocks .......... Magical light as the sun was going down ......... AAAAWWWWW........and LJ loves JC too.........xxx had my two walks as part of my physiotherapy for my back ....one in the woods with the doggies and one on the coast .....a perfect Sunday........
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 .....
