As many of you will know I’ve spent some time (quite a bit actually!) away concentrating on family life. Meg arrived in August 2014, so with a new baby and a very active now 4 year old Florence, means I’ve had very little time to be creative….…well that’s not entirely true. I have been beavering away on this new website, making lots of Christmas stockings, experimenting with new techniques, holding a kids craft workshop and lets not forget all of the finger painting, costume making, baking, halloween crafts, conker collecting and den building! In fact, I’m hoping to add a small range of childrens dress up items to my shop over the next few months.
So here’s a little look at what I’ve been up to over the last year….
There are some new items available in my shop including probably one of my largest and most detailed pieces to date ‘Blackheath Village’. I spend a lot of time here as my daughter attends the local school, Its just a short walk from me and is always bustling with life. I plan to create a series of stitched pictures of and around Blackheath, including Greenwich Royal Observatory and the beautiful Greenwich park.
I’m also hoping to get some prints made of some of my most popular original textile art pieces, which will eventually be available to buy in my web shop.
Since being on maternity leave and spending a lot of time with Flo & Meg, I guess my inspiration comes a lot from them, the places we visit, and people we meet. We are very lucky to have some fantastic parks and green spaces on our doorstep so we don’t need to travel into the city for entertainment! A lot of my time off has been spent in Greenwich park or on Blackheath, hence why I’ve chosen to create some textile art inspired by these views and places.
I held a Christmas workshop for children at a new local coffee shop just before Christmas. We made Christmas stockings and tree decorations and had a fabulously festive time! Children’s workshops are definitely something I am considering doing in the future, but for now I am concentrating on my textile art.
