I am lucky to have the amazing Jo Beattie as a regular client.
She explores the importance of toys in childhood and uses shadow to depict the important influence in memories.
I have been with her as she has been working towards the Knit and Stitch shows this Autumn and her exhibition is going to be absolutely amazing.

I made this picture from wet felt, overlaid with applique leaves in muted Autumn colours.
I’ll be showing this, along with new work, at our Attenborough Village Hall ABCAT Art Fair on Sunday October 27th.
I have just created an extensive website shop for Susanne’s beautiful semi precious stone and lava jewellery.
More than 60 gorgeous products available to buy online. Have a look – you’ll love it! www.susannesvjewellery.com
Susanne said of our work together:
Working with Karen on my on-line shop was a real pleasure from the start till the last appointment. Karen is a very creative, accurate person, well organised and very up to date. Communication between us was excellent.
I am extremely happy with the result, it looks very inviting and easy to navigate.
Great tips at the end from Karen and I am sure we stay in touch for updates etc.
Thank you so much, Karen!
It was a pleasure, Susanne! x
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!

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.

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.
