November, November and things to remember

A very bumpy journey to Arran thanks to the tail end of Hurricane
Gonzo! But we got there and the Autumn colours were beautiful. Sketches done ready for new pieces of work. Watch out for the one above in a more dramatic form!

Back home to mild weather and Halloween shenanigans; I’ve carved pumpkins, made soup and roasted the seeds, made ghost princess and bat girl costumes {& sneakily pinched a few Halloween Treats as my reward;)}

Managed to get a few badges finished for Saturday’s Christmas Market but then DISASTER ran out of glue!! Oh well, got some now so these little ones will be heading to the next market on November 8th. With a few new surprises too- see you there;)

I am a professional textile artist specializing in Appliqué and Free Motion machine stitching. In order to create a unique colour palette, I hand dye my own fabrics and then use these to create the landscapes and coastal scenes recorded in my sketchbook. I often incorporate recycled or vintage fabrics in my work - they add meaning to the story the work is telling. I love being so close to the Northumbrian coast and countryside and I especially like taking time walk and draw these stunning landscapes

  1. are they still running the bridge market?!? my mum used to do that every sunday when I was a kid (long before they started charging rent) I hated it so much, cos I’d get so bored and I was always either freezing cold or unable to get out of the sun. used to pray for torrential rain every sunday morning so I could stay in bed
