I want to create an animal alphabet print…I’ve barely had time to breathe the past couple of months with the Hand & Lock prize for embroidery finalist round, starting my MA and teaching.
Last night and this evening I put some time aside to make a start and I’m aiming to be finished in good time so the prints are available before Christmas.
Meet a happy little letter A for Alpaca (colour and letter to come ;))

Saturday night I arrived back from a week’s holiday in Berlin; I must have this tattooed on my forehead but a break away from the tread-mill can be hugely inspirational.
After five days of admiring architecture, museum & gallery visits and buying a hoard of kitsch doll print products to make my flat even more ‘off the wall’ I just sat down and wrote an action plan for 2014; so many of my old dreams have been re-visited, all I’m going to give away is: product application & Space Doll family………..watch this space!
Wednesday evening was the night Debut Contemporary Christmas Boutique; I came along with my Interactive Wallpaper, charity boxes for ‘Breast Cancer Care’ & ‘Beating Bowel Cancer’ and a selection of quirky seasonal and Christmas cards.
It was a great evening and the wallpaper is looking so fabulous from the Artists’ who have adorned a character with their unique handwriting.
The greeting cards are still selling at Debut Contemporary: http://www.debutcontemporary.com/
