Give Away Draw

Back from my week’s holiday last night: A lovely relaxed week in Swanage, Dorset. Despite rain and flooding throughout the UK over the last weeks we were lucky and had mostly fine sunny days.
Lots of fishing off the pier with the  beautiful view of Old Harry Rocks was done by my husband; fortunately I had ' Wolf Hall ' by Hilary Mantel on my Kindle. Can’t wait to get the sequel but will have to get myself to spend the money, I’m sure it will be more than worth it.

As promised now is the time to announce the winners of the two Give Away draws.
Firstly, a big thank you to all who read my blog, take the trouble to comment and even to join the Followers list. I notice when reading other people’s blogs that there are often moments of doubt and difficulty in keeping up or fuelling the creative urge; that creativity  which helps to keep many of us ‘together’ and  helps us through life’s dark moments. I’m a bit sentimental today as you can tell but suffice to say that blogging has given me a good deal.
Chosen at random the winner is:

The winner from the ‘Stitched’ workshops is:
 Nicole Maki

Please email with your address and I will send the work to you.

More 'Change'

I’ve taken some photos now of the pieces that had gone to City Lit for the exhibition before I got round to photographing them.

 I like this piece which was shown rolled like a bone shape at the exhibition. It unusual for me to like my work without lots of ‘ifing’ and ‘butting’ but this little piece of felt is quite delicate and tactile, and I feel pleased with it.

Don’t forget to add your name to the list for the Giveaway at the end of the month. To be in it to win it you need to leave a comment on the previous post.

On Melanie Testa’s blog there is a mouth-watering video of a shop selling a huge range of Trimmings in the garment district in New York. Take a look it will make you truly envious, better than any sweet shop. 

Worth a visit to this Textile Degree Show if you are in the Eastleigh area in Hampshire:

It’s a time of celebration here in the UK and it is hard not to get caught up in it whether you are a royalist or not, especially when asked to dress in red, white and blue for various outings to mark the Queen’s Jubilee.

There will be some giveaways here over June and July. The first one will be a thank you to those of you who read the blog and keep me enthusiastic about creating. The ‘prize’ will be - not a flight in a vintage plane - just a piece of my work. To be in it to win it you need to leave a comment on this post and join the Followers list if you are not already on it. It will be a random draw.

The second draw is for those who have joined ‘Stitched’ and to mark six months of the workshops. I will be giving away the small decorative bag made from the printed and stitched fabric linked to my workshop ‘Let’s Play Noughts and Crosses’. Access to the workshops for the next six months is now only half the original cost.
I will make both draws when I get back from holiday about the 24th June.
