About me

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.
