Gypsy Rose Lorna and the little'un in the bender....... 'Buy me pegs Sir ...help me feed the little'uns'........a bunch of 'eather for luck or cross me palm wi' silver and I'll tell 'ee fortune .....'
Visited Milestones the other day ......interesting stepping back in time .....my best bit of course was a cabinet full of sewing machines.....oh I'm so predictable... Will we all get home on this ?? His Master's Voice ..... Who had a kitchen like this in the sixties? Now my favourite bit ......of course.....
these look more like surgical instruments........ Now the scary thing is that I can remember Ironmongers like this and I used to love them ....I think we probably still have them in Wales ......beats B&Q anyday...AND you could buy 1 screw instead of packs of 500 !!..... One HELL of a pin cushion ..... Nothing like getting the kids working ....... Believe it or not I have a massive collection of wooden shoe trees I'll have to blog about them soon .... Fancy goods ???....... Should have said the Gentle Giant.....Hope you enjoyed the step back in time....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 .....
