Cow with giant fluffy ear

I love working with ink and living in an area surrounded by horticultural stuff. Meet one of the neighbours!

Textile time

A day trip to London to primarily see this exhibition was entirely worth it. 

Artist Textiles Picasso to Warhol.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside...again!

We were lucky enough to have spent the first week of half term in Cromer...I did a little bit of sketching, landscapes are not normally my thing. Fun though.

Feeling sheepish

I've been looking at Henry Moore drawings, always loved his sheep. So...trying to get in touch with my inner Yorkshire self, I set about with pen and ink to draw some of the locals. Despite being Derbyshire sheep I think we made good progress.

Taking the cows to market

Two craft stall opportunities in one week! The University of Sheffield had a week of the Art of Work and invited creative types to have a stall one evening. I shared my stall with two other library staff (what a creative lot we are) and had a great evening. It was lovely to see other University staff and their creative efforts, ranging from photography, jewellery and baking.

This weekend the local Guides were having a coffee morning and invited us to sell crafts to raise funds for daughter's Guide trip in summer 2015. A completely different demographic but equally fun to do. 

 The 'Totes Amaze Bags' sold really well at the Guide coffee morning.

A little bird told me

I've been playing around with a bird sketch to add to the block 'library' for totes amaze bags...thinking of totally tweet bags...made a drypoint print as's the proofs. Loving the green foliage, gives some depth to the bird.
