I can't believe that I am writing yet another post like this so soon after loosing my Lucy. May has not been a good month in my household for all sorts of reasons and I can't wait to see the back of it and then last night my lovely cavalier,Barney, passed away. He was the gentlest, kindest dog I have ever met. Never the brightest spark, bless him, there wasn't one bad bone in his body and he was a good friend to us all for so very long. He was very old and I know he had a long healthy life and with his doggy dementia and increasing neurological problems over the last few months he was probably ready but I am going to miss him so much.we all will. So travel well my old friend because if anyone deserves a place in doggy heaven you do xxx
I am a textile artist living in the suburbs of London with my husband and daughter and numerous pets.
I have recently gained a BA (hons) in embroidered textiles to add to my other qualifications both in textiles and teaching. I am a Licentiate of the Society of Designer Craftsmen, Leader of the exhibiting group Material Girls and instigator and founder Chair of the Eastern Region Textile Forum.
My practice is led by my work with both fibres and thread. I am most likely to be found sewing in my studio or sketching/photographing and wishing I lived near the sea!
