Tales from the Sock Drawer...

I've finally got some photos of the exhibition through...LOVE the Felt Mistress's chest! awesome characters! and love the tiny scene Kate Toms has created in the back of her sweet! Donna Wilson's fab characters looking as cool as ever... Great that everyone's pieces are so different.
The show is still on at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre Scunthorpe, until January 29th...then hopefully it'll all take a little tour to some other places. Will keep you posted.

Elle Decoration

My little Siskin is making a tiny cameo appearance in this months Elle's a bit of a hide and seek game, but he's there...perched on some cushions...

This weeks treat...

I would like to announce the opening of a wonderful new shop, Cotton baked by Lulu.
I dropped in this morning and made my first purchase...this gorgeous little fellow 'Ned'...can't wait for him to arrive.

Cotton baked by Lulu is a new venture of the superbly talented designer Nicola Pearson. I've been a fan of Nikki's since I first met her at uni some 11 years ago! I'm delighted she's now selling her stuff again...pop over yourself and take a peek!

I had some lovely commissions at the end of the year and didn't manage to post up any photos.
Here are 2 of them...a beautiful Curlew made for a couple from good old Yorkshire, and a delightful little Eastern bluebird, commissioned as a surprise for someone's Mother...
...commissions are always a bit daunting because I worry my representation won't live up to what the customer has imagined...but so far so good!

Where do my birds go?...

Over the years of selling my little creatures, I've occasionally received photos of them in their new home. It's lovely to see where they end up and what new sights they behold.
This month I received a lovely email out of the blue from a talented photographer/artist, Peter Yankowski...who sent me this fab photo! Isn't it wonderful?!

...and it got me to thinking how lovely it would be to continue this sort of thing so I can share with you where my birds go when they leave me, but this of course relies upon their new owners sending me some photos, so we can only sit tight and hope!...
