Dolls

I’ve been exploring new Ideas for products to sell on my craft stall and in my Etsy shop. I’ve come up with a way of using the textiles that I love, hand printed and recycled, in a very creative way, collectors dolls 🙂

Pop Up Exhibition

I’m very excited at the moment because I have decided to have a pop up exhibition in my gallery. I have just over two weeks to get everything ready 🙂 I have taken alot of time tidying and putting away things that just get left around and that in its self is very satisfying!

Makers Month – Free Style Crochet

Had a super morning in Norwich joining in Makers Month which is on for the whole of February which has different crafts to try during the month. I went today because my friend Kally was there with her freestyle crochet. Here are a few photos from the event. The Idea for her stand was for people to make a piece of crochet for the totem pole in the pictures.P1040084 P1040093 Here’s me concentrating very hard on my piece!P1040095 I was rather pleased with it in the end.P1040099 Here’s me with super clever Kally…P1040103 and here’s my piece attached to the totem! 🙂P1040104

Kally also makes amazing chunky crochet hooks from found pieces of wood. Here’s a link to the crochet event and here’s a link to Kally’s Facebook page Woolenwood 🙂
