Autumn is fast approaching and that ‘preparing for winter’ feel has kicked in. I’ve been thinking of indoor textile projects to work on in the studio and I’ve been reviewing some of the footage I took over the wonderful Summer we have had. The Kaffe Fasset and Candace Bahouth exhibition has left me with such wonderful memories. Everytime I think of it, my first thoughts are of the vibrancy of colour, then I think of texture and reflecting light.
Having caught up on a little I.T. housekeeping, I rediscovered some footage that I’ve put together to share with you.

The recent heatwave has provided a perfect opportunity for me to catch up with a little housekeeping. Not the domestic kind but a bit of computer housekeeping. I’ve tweaked and organised some photos and rediscovered some video footage from The Contemporary Craft Fair at Bovey Tracey. So after a little editing I’ve put together this rather jolly video diary to share with you.
I regularly receive questions on Instagram, about the artists I meet on my travels and how to contact them. Therefore, at the very end of this video I’ve included a selection of wonderful artists along with their contact details.

I’ve just returned home from a relaxing two week stay in Lancashire. Family, lots of tea and plenty of vintage shopping! As you may know, I’m always on the hunt for some indulgent textile inspiration, so on my way back south I swung by the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to see a collection of work by the fabulous Mister Finch.
In this beautiful exhibition, spread over two floors, I discovered the woodland characters featured in his new ‘The Wish Post‘ book.
It wasn’t long before I was drawn into the fairy-tale world of Mister Finch.
