don't know if you remember the sample
of the soldier I did
to be able to stitch on the community project

two panels are worked on at once
we work for 1-2 hours at a time
there will eventually be 5 panels
and will be hung in the museum

this is a very bad photo of the

this was taken weeks ago
so much more has been done
should take more photos

I am so thrilled to be a part of this!

it is planned to be finished in two years! yikes......
that's a lot of stitching

I also participated in a "craft" show in Brighton last weekend
not much success, I have to admit......
but thought my table look quite fetching!
(if I do say so myself)

see the whitish birds with the brown/orange tips?
they are a pearlized white but I burnt them in the oven!
they came out with these golden tips with gold flecks
a fantastic mistake

my friend from Get Felt had her felted bags there too

all sorts of things have been going on here......
I went to a class at West Dean
that place is!
such a beautiful house and the college
has a huge range of classes
all run so well
I took a class by Julie Arkell
who is an artist I have admired for a long time
she is such a warm and friendly person
and has fabulous personal style!

I also went into the tapestry studio there
it is one of the last working tapestry studios in the UK
so cool!
they had just finished making 4 pieces for Tracey Emin!
wish I could have seen them
but then again......if they were still working on them
we wouldn't have been able to go in the studio to see them anyway

let's see.......what else is going on?

oh yes
I'm shutting down my studio

we are moving

to the US


fairly soon

happy, excited, scared, anxious,
all at once!
