Well, I am signing off for Christmas.
Today we went to see the panto at The Churchill Theatre in Bromley, this is marking the start of my Christmas internet break. Oh no it isn’t! Bobby Crush was one of the best dames I have ever seen.
Thank you so much to everyone who has bought my work, and visited me on the various social media platforms which have crept into my life. Incidentally, I am thinking of joining Tumblr and/or Tsu. If you are on either of these, I would love to know what you think.
Those of you who read my stuff regularly, know that I don’t particularly enjoy blogging. I do it as a way to record my work, both for myself, and those of you who buy it. However, I enjoy the side-effect, the supportive community of friends that have grown around me. It’s lovely. Thank you.
Last year, I sent some complementary cards to everyone who had bought my work. I didn’t manage to do that this year, but you can expect something unexpected in the new year.
May your days be merry and bright,
PS. Above is the latest progress of my Barcelona Patchwork.
If You Are New Here:
I like to make art from stuff nobody else wants. Stuff from the bin. Stuff with a secret history.
I absolutely never cut up books which could otherwise be read, or clothes which could otherwise be worn. Nor, do I erase the blemishes left by life. I cherish life’s blemishes.
A few years back, I bought six vintage linen napkins in a charity shop, for the meagre sum of two pounds. So far, I have turned three of my napkins into sewn diaries, using fast food leaflets, old magazines and books.
Each of my napkins represents a month, with a different entry for each day. For example, the day Lynda Bellingham died, I added the Oxo box from my kitchen cupboard.
November is my fourth napkin this year, the others are June, May and October. Some of them can be found in my shop.
