I am feeling very happy today as I got into the studio this morning to find a parcel on my desk!!! Yey! My first one!! So thanks to Liz Butler from West Yorkshire for sending me 3 really exciting objects AND a 4 page letter explaining each one! I couldn't believe it! And Liz you are very welcome to come and see my degree show in June! Thanks so much! Here they are.....

But also the feather had a very amusing story!




Thanks so much, I have drawn the objects already but will post the drawings tomorrow!

Then this afternoon I went to a talk at Bolton Museum by artist Tabitha Kyoko Moses. It was about her exhibition called 'The Lost and Found' which is on at the museum until April 28th and I would definately recommend a visit- fantastic!!

Images from Embroidery 5

mood: sleepy sleepy
music: Damien Rice

The following images are from my last project, and might make it a little clearer as to what I intend to do with all of the objects that I get sent. However I am going to introduce colour and also take the wrapped pieces through to design ideas for purses, wallets or maybe even jewellery. I don't want to think about that just yet!
