As you may remember from a previous post, my massive applique work ‘Lace Market’ was accepted for the University Summer Exhibition and was on display for 3 weeks in July.
Even more exciting news – it sold! On the second day!!
Thank you so much to the mystery buyer from Mapperley. You have boosted my confidence enormously.
I hope you enjoy this work, which was made with great care and affection.
Now…on to the next project!
I’ve given my website a little tidy up – there are now easier links to my textile art, paper craft, cake and marketing activities. https://creativityonline.co.uk/
This new front page image brings all my creative ventures together.
My Etsy shops Paper Roses Shop and Felted Embroidered Art have both been updated with new products.
Do pop by and check it out when you have a moment!
I made these bespoke cakes for the last rehearsal this term of Nottingham Youth Voices and Junior Voices.
Cakes & singing = match made in heaven!

July 13th to 27th @ Djanogly Gallery, Nottingham.
The great news is, the picture SOLD on the second day, to a mystery buyer From Mapperley. I am beyond excited. There’s more work in this vein coming soon!
After all the Art Trail work, I am now looking forward. I will be seeking little lightbulb moments to illuminate the creative path ahead.
And having a bit of a rest.
I’ll be back to blogging in July.
The garden is looking lovely – it is filled with textures and shades of green. Pretty weeds and a wild lawn have been encouraged and embraced!
We’re all ready for the ABC Art Trail next weekend, looking forward to welcoming many people to enjoy our art, and chill over a goodie from the Nice Lolly Company.
One of a series of wild flower field felted artworks…
These depict what I see in the edges of the meadows at Haddon Hall.
A beautiful textural depth of greens with little pops of petal highlights.
The recently created dandelions survived the trip down to West Sussex and became the centrepieces for a gorgeous wedding.
We think they look rather uniquely special!
I love this time of year with all my sequins, felts, wool and festive paper laid out infront of me ready to start some Christmas creativity!
I will have a festooned stall at an Attenborough, Beeston, Chilwell Art Trail event at Meadow Rise Infant School on November 17th and 18th, along with other local artists and artisans.
Save the date!
I met with friends for the most conjenial Sunday lunch recently, in one of my favourite areas of the city, opposite Nottingham Castle. (The Castle is just about to get a multi million pound makeover – how lucky are we?)
I walked past these amazing buildings on the historic Standard Hill on the way back to the car. The road is so called to commemorate the raising of the standard by King Charles 1 in 1642, the start of the English Civil War.
The round tower was a circular Victorian hospital ward which opened in 1900 as part of Nottingham General Hospital’s Jubilee Wing.
These buildings literally take my breath away – my fingers are itching to depict them in some way, so inspiring.
