|Location||Coastal Town, East Sussex, United Kingdom|
|Introduction||I'm a "hands on" granny (got the bus pass this year!) and I live in a pleasant South Coast seaside town. During my "middle years" I took City & Guilds Creative Embroidery Parts I and 2 and creative embroidery became my passion. I love fabric, fibres and threads. Best of all is the way I can change the appearance of a piece of cloth with the addition of a few lengths of thread and some simple embroidery stitches. I like to experiment and then I like to use the resultant odds and ends and samples to make three-dimensional articles such as boxes, containers and textile figures. I'm also an enthusiastic blogger in the textiles corner of the "web" meeting other textile artists on-line from all over the world. Isn't technology wonderful?!|
|Interests||textile art, embroidery, creative embroidery, machine embroidery, hand embroidery, cloth doll making, quilting, stump work, sewing, needlework, watercolour painting, coloured pencils, pastel pencils|
|Favorite Books||Too many to mention. I get through piles of the 3 for £5 paperbacks from The Works and buy far too many books on textiles.|
How is an ankle unlike a consequence?
If you break an ankle you can mend it, but you can't undo the consequences of your actions.
