All Going Well

  • The talk about the bodices on Friday night seemed to go well.
No one fell asleep!
So me and my five girls are now ready to tour...
if your group might be interested in a talk... or a workshop... just let me know.
(Give me a bed and pay for my travel and I will go anywhere!)

  • My Second weekend of Open Studios also went well.
A record number of visitors and sales.
More lovely blogging friends came to see me.... Emma, Jill and San (plus family)
So now, pictures are being wrapped and delivered.

  • And even though I was unbelievably tired, my workshop on Monday went well.
I was asked back to Jenny's house, despite trying to wreck the place last time.
Jenny and seven friends had a day making books with me.
And as you can see there were some super results

Same instructions, same techniques yet lots of variety in the finished results.

 I loved some of the hand printed papers being used for the covers.

It was a lovely day ladies... thank you!
Lovely lunch too!
I'm available for workshops for small groups as well as large.
Just send me an email for details.

But for now I'm sitting and wondering what next!
Although plans are afoot for another summer sketchbook project on the blog.
Watch this space!


  1. No doubt you'll soon have something planned, meanwhile rest a little!

  7. I'm so glad your Open Studio was a success this year - kicking myself for not making it down to yours, but had to fit in a trip to Liverpool and clearing the house for the new carpets!


  8. Your bodice's are stunning.A lot of work has gone into them and it shows.
    The telephone box installation was wonderful.

  9. Lovely books.... looking forward to your summer sketchbook project.

  10. The books are beautiful and I love the bodice's. You will not be sitting still for long.

  11. I'm so looking forward to your Summer sketchbook project.
    Last year's was a turning point for me and I am back into drawing in a big way.

  12. Sounds like you need a bit of a breather after all that frantic work! The books look great. How are they stitched inside?

  13. My, you've been busy! Have a sit down and put your feet up! But only when you've inspired me to do something in my sketchbook this summer...

  14. Summer sketchbook project? I'm watching the space alright.... can't wait. L x
