We are back home on the island and I am dipping my toe tentatively into these bloggy waters. I will be leaving light foot prints in the sand from now on, but yes, I am ready to begin again. I have missed you all and hope that you will pop back to visit soon. Oh, and there will be an interview with someone lovely coming up in the next few days. Artwork above by the ever brilliant Julia Pott . Julia is guesting over at Shiny Squirrel every Friday for a whole month, you can see the first of her posts right here. I adore peeks into the lives of others, yes, I confess I am super nosey, so it was excellent to have a good snoop around Julia’s studio space. If you look closely you may see a familiar face!
I felt so proud looking at the pictures from the Stitch Wars show which is running at Bear & Bird in Florida as I write. This is the first time my work has been included in a group show so a little milestone for Lou Lou & Oscar I suppose. There is so much amazing work on display and Amanda has worked so hard putting everything together, hooray for everyone, so cool to see the show featured in The Guardian newspaper’s online edition as well. Here are a few images from Stitch Wars, featuring my boys-he, he!
And the embroidery pieces I submitted (far left). The vintage handkerchief ‘Philosophy of Yoda’ work has been sold
but my two Fish Boys are still without a new home, if you need a Star Wars related aquatic hybrid in your life you can go here to snap one up! *Only a lonely Storm Trooper boy left now!
Some more show news soon. See you all later.
