Yesterday Hubs put up a shelf for me in Art Room looks very nice! I can assure you that any amount of storage that is put in place, I will still create a mess, drives Hubs mad!:D I say to him I am an Artist it is a room of Creativity! so I will am bound to create a little mess :O !!!!

Looking for a mat!


I have spent the last few days trying to find a mat to embroider on. I am trying to find some that are the same or similar as the previous ones I have worked on as above,but to no avail! If someone knows where I can get them from can you let me know thanks. In the meantime I am working on another hand drawn pattern piece, and knitting the blue blanket. I have now fully completed the other blanket (left) by adding tassels, very effect.

Angel work in progress! Spent most of Friday working on this, glitter everywhere including my face! Coming on really well, busy looking after my niece so I don't know when I will get the time! maybe when she is taking a nap!


Angel work in progress, this has taken a while to complete as I was not sure what to do for the wings. I was going to use feathers but this was to easy. I wanted something that would take time like my drawings do. So I decided to whole punch silver glitter paper, this creates a layered effect which is working well. Just taking a long time but i enjoy it , I'm blessed with patience:).
