2021 – Challenge is at a end

Throughout January I’ve have been taking part in a Instagram challenge set by Jane Fuller of “Bobbin & Wire”. 

It had prompt for each day some easily connected to lace and lace making and some making you think out of the box.  Have a look on Instagram (link to my page) for #lacechallenge_2021 – but also the other fantastic lace makers from around the world that have contributed over the month. 

101 days to Christmas

This year has been a strange one; and with many events not going ahead; or if they are will have a different feel.

So if you thinking of making your own Christmas decorations 🎄 why not try this Robin Kit; comes with a felt wing or bobbin lace pattern. So suitable for lacemakers and non-lacemakers

This are available on my Etsy shop and also at the Minor Oak Market this Saturday at Sneinton Avenues ( also the vegan market is on; and blend will have delicious coffees available) – details on Facebook

Last week I was given a box of dolls – well what to do, after meeting there previous own. I was given permission to set spooky with them.

Using several mix media techniques and products I have created some creepy dolls. And some I have used Art Deco Glow in the dark paint on them, or elements of them. If interested in having one please get it touch.
