I think right now is a wonderful time of the year. Not least because it’s my birthday in a few days! I think over the years that timing has helped me to stay mainly ‘up’ at a traditional ‘down’ time.
My mind has turned to 2020 art making and I have filled my studio walls with blank canvases to provide inspiration.
Watch this space!
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 have just completed my third wet felting embroidery artwork, inspired by the beautiful gardens at Haddon Hall.
This one is a bit more interesting with the addition of some architecture, a theme I am keen to expand upon.
I have found a satisfactory way of framing these pictures now, in a box frame, so the viewer can see lots of texture.
Here’s some of the detail:
I spent the summer at home in Nottingham, for a change.
It’s been great – visiting forgotten old haunts, finding new places, meeting up with friends, riding on the tram, going to outdoor theatre and art galleries.
After living here for more than 25 years I think I had started taking Nottingham for granted. But I have fallen in love again…
I took this picture of tall white flowers in grass in the entrance to Haddon Hall. I think the flowers are yarrow. They are so beautiful – strong plants with such dainty petals.
I tried to capture the complex layers of greens underneath the flowers with many layers of wool in the wet felt.
