Bye bye Lucy Lou

Lucy was a little cat with a big attitude. For nearly 17 years she ruled the roost and kept the household menagerie in order- human and animal. Her spirit always burned brightly but her body finally failed her and she slipped away. I would like to think that at the gates of pussy cat heaven her ginger tom brother is waiting saying 'come on sis, hurry up I've found the perfect spot for us to lie in the sunshine'. Travel swiftly lovely Lucy- we'll miss you

Bridging Waters in Full Flow

The first exhibition of the Bridging Waters tour has now been completed and has proved even more successful than envisaged. The gallery staff commented on the good footfall and the visitor comments have been great. But of course this was just the first leg so to speak. The next time the work will be on view is as part of an event Material Girls are holding at the Woolmarket, Horndon on the Hill in Essex in May. Not only will you be able to see the exhibition - given a completely different context in this surrounding but there will be all sorts of other goodies happening including demonstrations from colleagues Lynda Monk, Sara Impey, Juliet Bryson, Janette Bright and Helen Wilson and of course some of the Material Girls. There will also be the opportunity to by textile art, supplies and learn about how you can get involved in textile art of all sorts in the East Anglia/East London Area amongst other things so look out for more info coming soon.
Of course there is nothing like experiencing the work in the flesh but above is just a hint of what the exhibition looked like at the Brentwood Road Gallery and the pieces I exhibited.
