Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy your visit.

Catch up on the day to day work I do, and the occassional thought. It's ok, I wouldn't subject you to all the gory details. For more of the handmade art and craft, jewellery and textiles I make and sell, see my online store.

Exhibitions coming up in Hamilton

If you want to see embroidery at its best, The Power of Stitch is on in Hamilton from 10 - 15 July at Waikato Diocesan School, Rever Road 9 am to 5 pm daily except sunday which is 4.00 pm close. Thursday 15 July is 12 Noon close.

Arts Post art gallery at 120 Victoria St has another exhibition running from 1 July to 3 August - opening times 10 to 4.30 daily. I have this piece called Lake Hawea in the Arts Post exhibition.

These exhibitions are run by the Waikato and NZ Embroideres' Guilds as the bi-annual Symposium.

Wright's Fabrics from Morinsville will be at the merchants mall at Albans Church Hall, Comries Road, Chartwell during the symposim.

I will be taking 3 classes over 4 days next week, so I will be happy but exhausted by Friday.

Talk to you next week.

Keep stitching.

It's not just about me.

I promised you some photos of Alison's pottery, so here they are. Check out the link (click on the heading) to find out about the exhibition in Taupo opening Friday 30th July 2010. At the exhibition you will see some of Alison's pottery houses. Those on exhibition are houses from 'around the world' while the ones in her garden look like a shanty town and are so full of character.

If you want to know more about her retreats, please ask.
