Today I finished my summer dream piece and am chuffed with its final outcome, which transports me to happy warm days on the river.


Today I started a new piece whilst dreaming of summer days paddling down the river. Here is the design of two young/ fledgling reed warblers huddling up to each other on a stem. Hidden away in the reeds that has come into flower, with the warmth of the sun making the whole piece glow.


I enjoyed making my last three-dimensional mouse so much I deiced to make this pair, who have both came to a halt as they noticed a Teasel head close enough to the ground for them to reach. Here the two field mice look up at the Teasel as one stretches to reach its head. I have often admired the structural form of the Teasel in my garden but found that it texture is hard to recreate in fabric whilst still keeping its three-dimensional form. Though after some hours of sampling I finally managed to achieve the desired effect and look forward  to challenges the Dipsacus family holds!


Every day this poor Buzzard gets bombarded by Crows and Rooks and today is no different.


I now have five new pieces at Cotehele Galley ready for their winter exhibition 'All Wrapped Up' which opens on Sat 5th Nov.


The finished article 'Sleepy Hollow'!

'Deep in the woods four foxes huggle together taking shelter in a hollowed-out tree trunk. One awakens to see the first dusting of snow that has touched the last of the hawthorn berries and fallen leaves in the surrounding woodland. '
