in case you're wondering...

where I've been since October cos now it's November and Christmas is looming...it's been a wonderful few weeks of workshops! It's been pretty full on, back to back, and so wonderful to have my studio full of happy makers sewing and cutting and chatting...
  

we've been done creative free machining, stitching landscapes, embellishing and making stitched story mini-books! I love getting people out of their comfort zones and helping them to surprise themselves with what they can create...there's no pressure to produce, the aim is to explore lots of different fabrics and techniques and have fun playing... 


it always amazes me the way how I can offer the same box of fabrics to 4 people and they all pick out what appeals to them and go create completely different pieces...I learn alongside and pick up hints and ideas as we go.






 


WOW! I am just about to put up next years dates for workshops...I'll let you know when they're on the website...


right now it's time to get some making done myself as 26th and 27th it's Art and Craft at The Kirkgate in Cockermouth...

then the best show ever, six of us in a Pop-up gallery at a local basket maker's workshop...more of that anon, must off and make tea now for my hungry family...

have a wonderful relaxing weekend
