I was fortunate to be invited to share the NW Embroiderers Guild Christmas Lunch near Abergele on Saturday. It was a super day, I was made to feel very welcome by such a friendly group of enthusiastic ladies. We all had a lovely time and very few fell asleep when I gave my slide talk after a lunch. After a large lunch, a glass or 2 of wine if someone puts the lights out its the most natural thing to want a little nap!
I am currently planning a month in Australia, starting in Tasmainia, exhibiting and teaching in November 2013. I am very pleased to say I have just been asked to run a 2 day course in Sydney which is a new location to add to my itinerary.

I have been invited to be the “Behind the Scenes” Author on www.makeandcraft.com
This is a feature that changes each month and my interview will be live for the month of January 2013.
Take a look, its an interesting website featuring a wide range of artists and craftmen. Make & Craft magazine is an inspiring environment featuring contemporary tutorials and projects using a wide variety of supplies and techniques, as well as, reviving traditional crafts worth cherishing
Busy afternoon putting a collection of my work on display in Oswestry Library. I have lower priced pieces here aimed unashamedly at the Christmas market !
