Christmas biscuits

An annual event – spend hours making piles of Christmas biscuits for the East of England Singer’s Christmas concert, and enjoy watching them being demolished in 10 minutes by an enthusiastic audience during the interval!

Christmas bics 2

Our ‘Globetrotting Christmas’ concert this weekend at St John’s Carrington was hard work and absolutely beautiful in equal measure.

 

Ancient tree

My latest felted embroidery work – Ancient Tree.

I displayed this in public without a glass frontage and it attracted a lot of interest. The texture, colours and intricacy of the embroidery were very visible.

I will be experimenting with new ways of displaying in 2019. Watch this space!

 

Christmas tree bunting

This is my favourite thing I made for Christmas this year!

3D padded Christmas Tree bunting made with muted greens. red and brown fabrics – linen, harris tweed, velvet, crinkled, patterned and hand trimmed on folded red ribbon. Impeccable finish. Will last for years!

There are still a few left on my Etsy site, FeltedEmbroideredArt HERE 

Do go ahead if you fancy…costs will be refunded to people able to collect from me in Nottingham.

Quince Jelly part 2

Amazing! I turned all my quinces into Quince Jelly, which is now on sale at the top notch greengrocer Hallam‘s on Beeston High Street. They sold half the stock last weekend!

It is also featuring on the cheeseboard in renowned vegetarian cafe Café Roya.

A bit of an adventure – well worth a bit of effort!

Customers are in for a treat – I remember when I first tasted it! A unique experience.

 

 

Pictures at an Exhibition

I am SO delighted to have two pictures in the annual University exhibition this year.

I have been visiting this exhibition for years and never dreamt I would see my work there until recently. I am eligible to apply being an ex employee.

The work is judged anonymously so I am super proud to have been chosen.

Another little jump in my confidence as an artist!
